The Magic of Friendship: A Review of “The Peach Keeper”

by T. Mack

On the heels of Galentine’s Day, I thought it would be a great time to highlight a book that takes female friendship and does some very mysterious and magical things with it. The Peach Keeper, by Sarah Addison Allen, is part mystery, part magical fantasy, and part buddy cop adventure. It’s a wonderfully strange tale of two women thrust together into a reluctant friendship in an attempt to uncover a decades-old mystery, protect their families, save their investments, and possibly, discover what true friendship really is.

The season of giving is officially here. We’ve enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner and now we can fully embrace the holiday season in all its glory.

While we enjoy the twinkling lights, the delicious food, and all the sappy movies that Hallmark Channel and Netflix can throw at us, let’s also remember those who are less fortunate. Because this season of giving is a wonderful time to give to those in need. While we shop, eat, and celebrate, let’s please keep in mind our friends in California who are currently losing their homes and lives to deadly fires, the homeless and impoverished in our own areas, and all those around the world who are not able to celebrate.

This season, as you give to family and friends, please consider giving to others as well. ‘Tis the Season.
