I want to thank Dorothy with Pump up your Book for letting me be a part of this blog tour.
Piper Mills really didn't know her grandmother or hand real desire to know her. Years ago, Piper's own dreams of becoming an Olympic equestrian champion rider were crushed...literally. Due to a mis-calculation on Piper's part, her horse didn't quite clear the jump. Piper was thrown from her horse, only to have the horse land on her. Piper was lucky to have survived though she may not think so, since she had ridden a horse again. Who can blame her.
Piper ends up heading back to Savannah, where she inherited her grand parents home as well as being the care giver for her grandmother. Piper finds some old torn pages from a scrapbook. She also located a secret room with a crib. Piper decides that her grandmother might actually have a story worth listening too. Unfortunately she passes away and the only other person alive, who knows the truth is not sharing anything. Piper realizes that you sometimes have to get past the pain to experience true happiness.
The Lost Hours surprised me in a good way. It turned out to be a enduring, sweet read. I read this book in one afternoon. This is because I felt an connection with the characters in this story and wanted to know more about them. There was something about the simplicity of the story that worked. A part of this was also the location. Locations can sometimes help bring everything together and that is what Savannah, Georgia did. The South wins! Karen White won me over with this novel. I plan to check out more of her books. If you are looking for a new author to try then Karen White is it.
