This was a bit unexpected. Based on the title and the author’s definition of the word “lemoncholy” I thought this was YA. It is not. See? Unexpected! Having shifted gears to adult novel mode and noting that the book isn’t listed as romance, I thought myself safe from insta-love. I was not. Unexpecte...

In the vein of the movie ‘The Lake House’ in which a mailbox links two different times, this book has just such a communication device which links past with present, and two different geographical locations: present-day San Francisco with 1890s Kansas. I have always been fascinated by stories that b...

I read a lot of reviews since this book's release that said the story left the reader flat, as though it didn't quite live up to the reader's expectations. I bought it anyway because, cover love. Perhaps because of these reviews my expectations were adjusted accordingly, or maybe the book was jus...

The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster is a book that had me at hello. The title intrigued me and I liked the sound of it. The word “lemoncholy” was my favorite part. I had never heard that word but I enjoyed saying it over and over. And then once you open the book, the first thing you read is the defin...

After Annie buys an old door she finds out it's more than just a door, it also transports her to late 19th century Kansas. In the beginning of the story is mainly a mail conversation between the two residents of the houses in the different eras. It reminded me of the movie The Lake House. However,...

by Scott Wilbanks Oh my, where do I start? This is a time travel book, my favorite subject, with an interesting selection of misfit characters. As far as the mechanism for time travel goes, it's a simple magic door, or actually a more complex magic door than the usual, but we're only given hints a...

I liked a whole lot of this book, but I must admit that it was confusing for me as well. It reminded me of that movie the Lake House they kept leaving letters for each other, even though they actually lived during different times. This author took it a little further and made it not a romance, but a...

There is an adventure waiting at every door! Annabelle Aster doesn’t bow to convention—not even that of space and time—which makes the 1890s Kansas wheat field that has appeared in her modern-day San Francisco garden easy to accept. Even more peculiar is Elsbeth, the truculent schoolmarm who sends...

The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster Scott Wilbanks, 2015 One morning Annabelle Aster wakes up in her San Francisco home to find a Kansas wheat field in her backyard. Perhaps even more confusing is the letter that appears in the brass mailbox that divides the properties. The letter is from the own...
