In 1929, thirty-seven-year-old newlywed Ethel Monroe hopes desperately for a baby. In an effort to distract her, her husband whisks her away on a trip to Vermont, where a natural spring is showcased by the newest and most modern hotel in the Northeast. Once there, Ethel learns that the water is rumored to grant wishes, never suspecting that the spring takes in equal measure to what it gives
Things I liked:
1) The dual timelines. This was done in a unique way. I don't think I have read anything like this.
2) I normally don't love anything to do with history but I was invested in both timelines equally.
3) I went into this book pretty blind. I think its a book you really need to do that with
4) This was my first book by this author and I don't think it will be my last.
Things I was not fond of:
1) I wasn't a fan of how Jax and Lexie were compared to each other a lot by family and friends. You can tell that it affected Jax a lot in adulthood.
2) Some of the family members are pretty sketchy people. For the most part a pretty normal family but those few weren't my favorite.
Overall I think this book had a lot of great things and the writing was rather addicting. Would recommend to pick it if you like this author.
My rating: ♥♥♥♥
