Up a Butternut Lake

Up a Butternut Lake

by Mary McNear

Laura Hall: This was Mary’s first published book, but I found her writing similar to other writings I have read from Karen Kingsbury or Nicholas Sparks as she flows with details, emotions, and different plots in a very smooth, nonconfusing way. This is a story of 3 women in 3 different walks of like from divorced with a child just left for college, widowed from her husband killed in war and having a 5 year old son with her now, and a mom of 4 married to highschool sweetheart. It is a beautiful story of how each of these women face different aspects of their lives which leave them staring in the face of fear of leaving the past but the necessity to do so in order to step forward in the future. How they encourage one another, but also seem to be or could be giving their own selves advice is lovely. It reminds me of how sometimes just talking out loud or helping others brings us more happiness than doing for ourselves. I hope to read more by this author, too!
