Fiction Friday: The Peach Keeper

The Peach Keeper, by Sarah Addison Allen, is a book I recently finished.  It was an interesting, easy read.  It's a story of Willa, who is a descendant of the wealthy town foundering family, who then lost their fortune.  It's a story of Paxton, a currently wealthy woman who went to school with Willa.  And it's a story of their grandmothers, who were best friends at one point, and maybe still are.  It's a little strange and although I wouldn't recommend it to just anyone, I did find two quotes in it that hit me:

Happiness is a risk.  If you're not a little scared, then you're not doing it right. (p238)

Fate never promises to tell you everything up front.  You aren't always shown the path in life you're supposed to take.  But, if there was one thing she'd learned in the past few weeks, it was that sometimes, when you're really lucky, you meet someone with a map. (p242)

Have a great weekend!
