When Emily loses her mother in a car accident, she leaves the town and everything she knows to go live with her grandfather, a man she never met. Mullaby reveals itself as a town where wallpaper changes magically, cake makes you happier than it should and a version of her mother that she doesn’t understand.
Beautifully written without being pretentious even the magic doesn’t seem that far-fetched. Sarah Addison Allen writes about a peculiar kind of realistic magic. Her books pull you in makes you feel welcome the perfect companion for a cold winters night.
Favorite quote:
“There is a promise of happiness out there. I know it. I even feel it sometimes. But it’s like chasing the moon – just when I think I have it, it disappears into the horizon. I grieve and try to move on, but then the damn thing comes back the next evening…”
Did the book make me laugh:
No, but it did wrap me in happiness.
How did the book make me feel:
The book made me think about my own mother and how we never wonder about our parents life experiences.
