Luna Lark used to love her name, before people started saying it differently. I’m sorry Luna, are you okay Luna? Now Luna is taking back control and starting agin in the most remote place she could find, Ondingside. A little island with no more that 150 residents. Luna is hoping to finish her latest novel, get back to normal and maybe even find love. Then on her first day in Ondingside, a freak July snow fall freezes the town. Snowed in the town stands still. Can Luna break out of the monotony and do what she came to do?
Carrie’s books always seem to land in my life when I need them the most and this one was no different. Her writing seems to improve more and more with each book that she writes and this is one of my favourites.
Carrie’s books are always filled with magical realism which I am starting to like a whole lot more. I loved this element throughout this story. All of it felt so real and didn’t take me out of the story or make me thing it was all made up.
Luna, Beau and Wendy were all excellent characters that I adored reading about. All of them were well developed and were memorable. I loved all the secondary character that Carrie created and how each one of them had a well developed background and story.
I flew through this book in a matter of days as it is so easy to read. Although this book has repetition it didn’t get repetitive and felt extremely fast-paced. I would love to see a sequel to Luna’s story and what happens in Ondingside even from another character’s perspective.
Overall, In the Time We Lost is a romantic, sweet and magical read that is very easy to fly right the way through. It is a lot of fun!
