Overview

Tras una estancia en Japón, Lucy Jarrett regresa a la casa junto al lago donde creció. En su hogar, Lucy constata que aún siguen persiguiéndola algunos interrogantes sobre la misteriosa muerte de su padre, ocurrida diez años atrás. Sin embargo, por muy profundos que estén enterrados, los secretos del pasado no pueden permanecer ocultos eternamente. Una noche Lucy descubre por casualidad una serie de objetos que en un principio no parecen ser más que curiosidades, pero que poco a poco se van desvelando como piezas de un intrigante rompecabezas muy ligado a su historia familiar. Las indagaciones sobre las huellas del pasado llevarán a Lucy a hacer asombrosos descubrimientos sobre su familia y sobre ella misma, que le llevarán a replantearse su vida y vivirla al máximo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION 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.
