The Lost Art of Mixing

The Lost Art of MixingThe Lost Art of Mixing by Erica Bauermeister
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"After the exhilaration that was summer in the Pacific Northwest, autumn was like the sigh of an adolescent who realizes he must indeed grow up. It was Lillian's job to remind people who sat at her tables that being an adult, the passing of a season or a year, was about more than just being older."

Although the story seemed a bit too long at certain points, it is a captivating tale about a circle of lives touching and intertwining in ways not always apparent to the characters. Louise is the only character who didn't ring true for me. Her character seemed contrived to fit the story line rather than being as believable as the others . However the overall effect of this book is highly satisfying. Are we stumbling through life without knowing our impact on others? Read this clever book and draw your conclusions.

Sounds like a good story and I like books set in my neck of the woods.
