Kelsey Lawton, a preacher’s daughter, had listened to her grandfather, John K. Lawton, and his friends talk about the Lost Lake legend since she was a very young girl. The men often sat around the Lawton’s kitchen table discussing the legend, which they had heard about from their parents, who, in turn, had heard about it from their parents. As it was told, a group of people from below the Canadian border traveled in covered wagons from Minnesota into Northern Ontario where they settled on the banks of an uncharted lake somewhere north of Mill Bay, the Ontario community where Kelsey made her home. Intrigued by what she had heard, Kelsey often wondered if she would ever be able to see this mystery lake for herself. Believing that Lost Lake really existed and wasn’t just a legend, Kelsey secretly collected clues that she hoped would eventually lead her to this lake, which, as her grandfather told it, was “a fur piece north” of Mill Bay. A nature photographer who used her skills to paint a picture of God’s wonderful creation, Kelsey worked at Craig’s Cameras alongside handsome Brett Conroy. Brett, who is studying to be a forest ranger, had been watching Kelsey for most of the three years they had been working together, wondering what it was that made her seem to be so happy all the time. When Brett, who had just recently begun attending the local Baptist church where Kelsey’s father is the pastor, finally gets the courage to invite Kelsey to the annual church picnic, both of their lives are changed forever.
