Introduction

From Kim Edwards, the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Memory Keeper's Daughter, an arresting novel of one family's secret history

Imbued with all the lyricism, compassion, and suspense of her bestselling novel, The Memory Keeper's Daughter, Kim Edwards’s The Lake of Dreams is a powerful family drama and an unforgettable story of love lost and found.

Lucy Jarrett is at a crossroads in her life, still haunted by her father's unresolved death a decade earlier. She returns to her hometown in Upstate New York, The Lake of Dreams, and, late one night, she cracks the lock of a window seat and discovers a collection of objects. They appear to be idle curiosities, but soon Lucy realizes that she has stumbled across a dark secret from her family's past, one that will radically change her—and the future of her family—forever.

The Lake of Dreams
will delight those who loved The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, as well as fans of Anna Quindlen and Sue Miller.

  "Lake of Dreams Caused Insomnia"by nbaker (see profile) 05/03/13

This book kept many of our readers up at night and not because the story was so engrossing, but because we all had trouble following the plot, the characters and their purpose. The book left so many unanswered... (read more)

I enjoyed this book. I thought the beginning was a little slow. After Lucy gets "home" is when I really started to like the book. I found it had many interesting facts, plus a great family history. I am... (read more)

Parts of the book are very interesting, that dealing with the forgotten relative. Other parts are slow and raise questions that are not fully answered. Bot overall it was a good book.
