The Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards

Book Description:

Published: November 2, 2010

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.

Review –

This was my second listening of this book and I liked it more this time around as is usually the case. 

The characters are well-defined and developed, locations are described vividly and the story is multi-faceted and wonderful.  If you or anyone you know is interested in genealogy or ancestry then this book is for you. Lucy discovers things about a relative that had been left out of the family history and she searches and locates all the information needed to properly do her justice. It’s a wonderful story of  travel, love, heart-break and the importance of family history.
