59 Reminiscence Lane by Celia Anderson
Every day counts
59 Memory Lane by Celia Anderson is a delightful contemporary novel about the community. It is a wonderful warm read.
There is a diverse mix of characters between the ages of six and one hundred and ten. They all live in a small Cornish village and we experience the ups and downs of village life. Needs are met when people are looking for others. The downside is that the clap machine works overtime – your business is not your own.
A series of letters links the most important events of the past while the reader hears about a puzzle to be solved.
The novel celebrates friendship and friendliness – some friendships are new, others decades old. Life is just too short to hold on to resentment.
Memories are important. Sometimes memories reveal old secrets. The reader sees the need that arises when valuable memories cannot be accessed.
I loved 59 Memory Lane. It was a totally charming read that I couldn't take off.
