Morton’s “The Lake House” Masterful

th-3Kate Morton has mastered the art of writing a timeless novel:  a compelling setting,  well-developed characters, the weaving together of unforgettable storylines, and flawless description.  The Lake House is a delicious read, the kind of book you don’t want to put down.

The Lake House centers around a beautiful estate abandoned under tragic circumstances:  a mystery never resolved.  D.C. Sparrow is the young detective who stumbles across the property while on an imposed leave.  Unable to walk away from an unsolved puzzle, Sparrow delves into the estate’s past and encounters many answers to what has been haunting the old house and her own life.

Caroline Lee reads the audio version of this novel, her voice lending an authenticity to the tale.

The Lake House is a mystery, and a study of human nature, comparable to the classics.

Writer, avid reader, former educator, and proud grandmother, currently experiencing life through the lens of ME/CFS. Words are, and always have been, a lifeline. Some of the best adventures, I'm discovering, take place in the imagination.
