Description

From the author of the bestselling and beloved novel The Memory Keeper's Daughter Kim Edwards, comes a mesmerising story of startling family secrets and lies in the Sunday Times bestselling novel The Lake of Dreams.



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.



Sleepless one night, Lucy 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 . . .



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.
