My Rating: 5 Stars
While The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie, in parts, gave me some really strong Peggy Sue Got Married (‘86 Francis Ford Coppola film) vibes, this is entirely its own story. And it’s an emotional rollercoaster of a story. The author captures emotion beautifully, writing it down and then gifting all the feelings to us. This one definitely made me tear up in places.
It also brought me back the very descriptive treat of life on a Washington island (our smaller-then family lived on Whidbey Island for a few years where I sold handmade herbal skincare products at the farmers markets there, so I loved Lolly’s connection to herbs,edible flowers, and markets.
This was a beautiful read and I strongly recommended this title.
