One of my favorite summer pleasures is to lose myself in a good book. There’s nothing like being totally immersed in a story that, like scent, transports you to another place and time. The Lantern, author Deborah Lawrenson’s first novel, does just that. An Advance Reader’s Edition of The Lantern arrived in my mailbox a few weeks ago and it has been my constant companion ever since. Whenever I’ve got a spare moment, I steal away and read a chapter or two. Set to release on August 9, this modern Gothic novel interweaves past and present through the voices of 21st century Eve and 20th century Benedicte. They alternate to tell the story of Les Genevriers, a hamlet nestled in the lavender fields of Provence.
