I liked Tom Lake but I didn’t love it. I adore Ann Patchett as a person but I seem to have an emotional disconnect with her fictional writing - none of the characters or storylines ever feel real to me. That said, I see what makes this book good and I would still recommend it even though it wasn’t one of my favorites.

So good! Listen to the audiobook, it's read by Tom Hanks and he does an amazing job of bringing this story to life!

This book had great potential and I was very hopeful that I would love it. It has great characters and colorful descriptions of places and situations. Yet, throughout the book I felt that something substantial was missing. After finishing all of the chapters and thinking back, I now believe that it is the story itself. There is no substance to the plot. It is a lengthy book for what it presents and with all that great potential at the beginning, I am left feeling disappointed...

This is a charming book about a mother and her daughters coming together during COVID lockdown. Being trapped at home together, they explore their mother's past which included a relationship with a famous movie star.
