The Lake of Dreams

Author(s): Kim Edwards

Fiction

The darkest secrets are the ones we hide from ourselves...Ten years ago, traumatized by her father's death, Lucy left her home and her country. Now, she returns to her family's rambling lakeside home to lay old ghosts to rest. However, sleepless one night, she makes a momentous discovery. Locked in a moonlit window seat is a collection of family heirlooms - objects whose secrets no one was ever supposed to find. Piecing together her family's true history, she realises that the story she has always been told was a fiction. And the more she uncovers, the more Lucy comes to question her own life choices - including why it is that her first lover, Keegan Fall, has never left her heart...Mesmerizing and haunting, "The Lake of Dreams" is a startling story of family secrets and lies, lost love and redemption, and of the many pieces and puzzles that make up a life.
