"From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours comes a new novel inspired by little-known historical events: a dramatic story of three young women on a journey in search of family amidst the destruction of the post-Civil War South, and of a modern-day teacher who rediscovers their story and its vital connection to her own students' lives. In her distinctive voice, Lisa Wingate brings to life startling stories from actual "Lost Friends" advertisements that appeared in Southern newspapers after the Civil War, as freed slaves desperately searched for loved ones who had been sold off. Louisiana, 1875: In the tumultuous aftermath of Reconstruction, three young women set off as unwilling companions on a perilous quest: Lavinia, the pampered heir to a now-destitute plantation; Juneau Jane, her illegitimate free-born Creole half-sister; and Hannie, Lavinia's former slave. Each carries private wounds and powerful secrets as they head for Texas, following dangerous roads rife with ruthless vigilantes and soldiers still fighting a war lost a decade before. For Lavinia and Juneau Jane, the journey is one of inheritance and financial desperation, but for Hannie, torn from her mother and eight siblings before slavery's end, the pilgrimage westward reignites an agonizing question: Could her long-lost family still be out there? Beyond the swamps lie the seemingly limitless frontiers of Texas and, improbably, hope. Louisiana, 1987: For first-year teacher Benedetta Silva, a subsidized job at a poor rural school seems like the ticket to canceling her hefty student debt--until she lands in a tiny, out-of-step Mississippi River town. Augustine, Louisiana, seems suspicious of new ideas and new people, and Benny can scarcely comprehend the lives of her poverty-stricken students. But amid the gnarled live oaks and run-down plantation homes lies the century-old history of three young women, a long-ago journey, and a hidden book that could change everything"--… (mer)

One story tells of three women in 1875 heading to Texas from Louisiana searching for lost family members or lost fortunes. The second story concerns a first-year teacher in a tiny Mississippi River town and her uninterested students. In encouraging her students, Benedetta and her students discover a long lost book. ( )

I enjoyed this one, Read for f2f bookclub. Story set in two time lines. One is modern; teacher in a town in Louisiana trying to engage her students and she discovers the rich history of the people and the other is a time line that explores how people enslaved by others and sold as merchandise lost their families and their struggles to find each other. I enjoyed both story lines. ( )

THE BOOK OF LOST FRIENDS by Lisa Wingate
Two intertwined stories combine to tell this tale. One story tells of three women in 1875 heading to Texas from Louisiana searching for lost family members or lost fortunes. The second story concerns a first-year teacher in a tiny Mississippi River town and her uninterested students. In encouraging her students, Benedetta and her students discover a long lost book.
Wingate did her research in discovering the background of the “Lost Friends” sections of some southern newspapers. Her research is the basis for this book
Wingate always gives us well developed characters and well plotted tales. This book is no exception.
5 of 5 stars ( )

A very interesting story, but sometimes it was hard to follow with the jumping back and forth between eras. ( )

The dramatic story of three young women searching for family amid the destruction of the post–Civil War South, and of a modern-day teacher who learns of their story and its vital connection to her students’ lives.

Sad thing when stories die for the lack of listenin' ears.
Augustine has taught me that the past travels with you. It's whether you run from it or learn from it that makes all the difference.
Every time you mourn for me, I'll be far away. But when you celebrate, I'll be right there with you, dancing.
