The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen




Title:  The Peach Keeper
Author:  Sarah Addison Allen
Publisher:  Bantam Books
Publication Date:  2011
Pages:273

This is another great book by Sarah Addison Allen!  It is filled with intrigue, mystery, romance, magic and southern charm.  I love the way the writing has the power to wrap you up in the character's lives and make you feel like you are part of the story.  I believe this is a story that almost everyone will be able to connect to their own life.  It is set in a small southern town and about the love and friendhips of several people that grew up together and then grew apart as they became adults.  Two old ladies that are in a nursing home helps to bring them all back together.  The getting back together and discovering what they want out of life is what makes the story come alive. Like Sarah Allen's other books theis story is also full of southern lore which is always fun.  Did you know that a pink sky is a sign of someone discovering love? Or that when you hear a bell ring you should hold your hands to scoop up the good fortune?  Well, according to southern lore that is exactly what you should do!
