9781492612469: The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster

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 Annie letters through the mysterious brass mailbox perched on the picket fence that now divides their two worlds.
Annie and Elsbeth's search for an explanation to the hiccup in the universe linking their homes leads to an unsettling discovery-and potential disaster for both of them. Together they must solve the mystery of what connects them before one of them is convicted of a murder that has yet to happen...and yet somehow already did.

About the Author :

They say, "Write what you know." Who 'they' may be still remains a mystery, but I took the advice to heart when I wrote a book about a pair of misfits who found themselves walking a path I trod daily, seeking understanding in an indifferent world, but more on that later.

With my life constantly pushed and pulled by a pair of opposing bugaboos--ADD and drive--I surprised myself by graduating summa cum laude from The University of Oklahoma while also garnering a handful of titles in the sport of gymnastics.

Life-changing accidents, lost loves, and an unremarkable career path followed, that is until a lawsuit and Mike changed everything. The lawsuit motivated me to step away from my career. Mike added the extra push, convincing me to take a leap of faith, and move to the country of his birth, New Zealand, while also encouraging me to "see where this writing will take me."

Scott is the author of THE LEMONCHOLY LIFE OF ANNIE ASTER, a commercial fiction novel with a fantasy premise releasing August 4, 2015 that tells the story of two pen pals who are fighting against the clock to solve the mystery behind the hiccup in time connecting their homes before one of them is convicted of a murder that is yet to happen... and yet somehow already did.

Review :

"No book can be all things to all readers-but The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster succeeds resoundingly in being many delightful things that one does not ordinarily find tucked into the same cover: mystery, time travel, history, and gentle social commentary. Slyly mysterious, cleverly imaginative, wistfully romantic, and truly unforgettable." - national bestselling author Sophie Littlefield

"Readers will adore this heartfelt, one-of-a-kind debut and the charming, quirky characters tramping through its pages. Written in sly, quick-witted prose and filled with soul, The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster will have you thinking, smiling, and wondering if you can find your own magic door." - Michelle Gable, international bestselling author of A Paris Apartment

"An endearing, magical romp, this tale of a charming cadre of misfits, has everything. A charismatic leading lady, her lovably awkward sidekick, a truly evil villain, a Victorian schoolmarm, a wise waif, one amazing door, and a great deal of deft wit. The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster is a pitch perfect exploration of love, friendship, and the ageless desire we all have to belong, regardless of when and where we are. The deliciously droll narration is a delight for any century, any time." - Rhonda Riley, author of The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope

"Skillful and loving creation of a cast of fascinating characters...quirky charms are undeniable." - Library Journal

"To even try to truncate the action of The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster into a succinct, sound byte-ish few sentences would be incredibly foolish, were it even possible (spoilers or no spoilers). Let me just say that author Scott Wilbanks lets no moss grow under the feet of the characters in this, his debut novel – how could he, with two time periods to contend with, multiple mysteries (not all of which are contingent on the space/time bubble thingy), and – oh yes – murder? " - Lit Stack

"The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster is a fun little time-bending mystery. Wilbanks's whimsically romantic writing style is perfect for this story of a woman out of time. " - Reading Lark

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that you can't mix a romance book, a time travel story, a Jane Austen pastiche, an epistolary novel and family drama. Or is it? Well, it seems that the Universe will have to check which truths it acknowledges because all that (and more) is what Scott Wilbanks has done in the very entertaining The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster. " - Sense of Wonder

"Time travel. Murder. Mayhem. Magic. The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster is full of twist and turns you should but won't see coming." - The Lovely Books

"The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster is definitely a book for you if you enjoy time travel, mystery, and a damn good story. Scott Wilbanks has written an incredibly engaging first novel and I'm very much looking forward to what he writes next." - Books Etc.

"A fun take on time travel with a feisty heroine and some excellent supporting characters. " - Magic Realism

"Some authors just have a truly remarkable gift; they can make you fall in love with a story, its characters, and its magical tale just by describing something as small as a letter, wheat field, or Victorian wardrobe. Scott Wilbanks, you have that talent. " - Charming Chelsey's

"The Lemonscholy Life of Annie Aster is a delightful, feel-good, heart-warming tale. Thoroughly entertaining, and enchanting, it is the perfect Summer read." - SJ2B House of Books

"Mr. Wilbanks has a sure touch when it comes to characterization...whimsical, funny, entertaining way of telling a story. " - Buried Under Books

"This book is perfect for those who are looking for a book that's fully engaging and will stick with you for very long time!" - A Bookish Affair

"It has such a unique storyline and because of that I ended up loving this story. " - The World As I See It

"Beautifully written novel with wonderful characters and a fascinating plot. Delightfully entertaining. Leaves you feeling good and wanting more magic from this author. " - Deco My Heart
