It happens one morning – Kate finally wakes up from the slumber she’s been in since her husband’s death a year ago. Feeling a fresh sense of desire to take control of her and her young daughter’s life, she decides to visit Suley, Georgia – home to Lost Lake. It’s where Kate spent one of the happiest summers of her life as a child. She’s not sure what she expects to find there, but it’s not a rundown place full of ghosts and other curious oddities. Kate’s Aunt Eby, Lost Lake’s owner, wants to sell the old place and move on. Lost Lake’s magic is gone. As Kate discovers that time has a way of standing still at Lost Lake, can she bring the cottages – as well as her heart and the hearts of all the guests – back to life? Because sometimes lost loves aren’t really lost. They’re just waiting for you to find them again.
