    Wonderful adventure

    In The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster, author Scott Wilbanks takes us on an exciting romp with a group of unconventional time travelers. This is a delightful tale, but to fully enjoy the story, you have to resist the urge to question the naive characters' acceptance of anything they are told with very little evidence. Miracles and coincidences abound within the pages of this book. Reading this magical story is like watching the flowers in Annie rose garden bloom. Each petal opens to reveal new and exciting possibilities. I highly recommend this book.

    I did not want this book to end!

    I just finished a delightful book called The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster by Scott Wilbanks. Annie Aster lives in the home she grew up in in San Francisco, California. It is May of 1995. Annie is a unique individual (she loves wearing vintage clothing). She just had a new red door installed in the kitchen (that looks outside). It has unusual carvings around it. The next morning Annie has a wheat field and a log cabin in her backyard. When she tries to go visit, she ends up back in her own yard. There is also a little mailbox sitting between the two properties. Annie is delighted especially when she finds a letter in the mailbox from the lady in the cabin. Elsbeth Grundy is sixty-five years old and living in Sage, Kansas in May of 1895. She is a loner, a widow, and not happy to find the colorful (aubergine and gold) Victorian in her wheat field. Elsbeth tries to get to the door of the Victorian house, but finds herself right back where she started. Elsbeth decides to write a letter to the home owner telling her how she feels. This is the beginning of correspondence between Elsbeth and Annie (entertaining letters). This gets Annie started on looking into the origins of the door. She purchased it an antique store that was originally in Kansas City, Kansas (what a coincidence). The door was owned by magician and illusionist, David Abbott. How does the door work though? Are Annie and Elsbeth connected in some way? A definite mystery that Annie cannot resist. Annie, Elsbeth, and some other wonderful characters are in for an adventure with the red door. I found The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster to be an enjoyable book to read. I give The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster 5 out of 5 stars. It is an engaging and well written novel that will have you hooked from the first page. I loved the characters. They were fun, quirky, and relatable. I loved how the author tied everything together in the end. This is a unique novel that is just a delight to read. I received a complimentary copy of The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This review was edited for submission to Kobo.

    The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster

    This book was a pleasure to read! I was eager to reopen it in order to find out what happens next. Annie and the rest of the characters were odd, funny and extremely likable.

    Fun yet touching tale

    I found this a very whimsical and fantastical tale. I had no expectations going in and that is good as this book is unlike any that I've read before. A fun read I would recommend to most.
