From the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of The Secret Keeper and The Distant Hours, an intricately plotted, spellbinding new novel of heart-stopping suspense and uncovered secrets.

Living on her family’s idyllic lakeside estate in Cornwall, England, Alice Edevane is a bright, inquisitive, innocent, and precociously talented sixteen-year-old who loves to write stories. But the mysteries she pens are no match for the one her family is about to endure…

One midsummer’s eve, after a beautiful party drawing hundreds of guests to the estate has ended, the Edevanes discover that their youngest child, eleven-month-old Theo, has vanished without a trace. What follows is a tragedy that tears the family apart in ways they never imagined.

Decades later, Alice is living in London, having enjoyed a long successful career as an author. Theo’s case has never been solved, though Alice still harbors a suspicion as to the culprit. Miles away, Sadie Sparrow, a young detective in the London police force, is staying at her grandfather’s house in Cornwall. While out walking one day, she stumbles upon the old estate—now crumbling and covered with vines, clearly abandoned long ago. Her curiosity is sparked, setting off a series of events that will bring her and Alice together and reveal shocking truths about a past long gone...yet more present than ever.

A lush, atmospheric tale of intertwined destinies, this latest novel from a masterful storyteller is an enthralling, thoroughly satisfying read.

Five Stars
Kate Morton has been on my "to-read" list for so long, I was so excited to finally have the opportunity to read her work. "The Lake House"had my interest from the first sentence.  Immediately the author set the mysterious tone that would last throughout the entire story. Sadie and Alice were very interesting and complex heroines.  I loved how the author was able to make their differences complementary and how she intertwined their story.  The author's story flowed as did her writing.  The book flowed and I was completely captivated by Sadie and Alice and intrigued by the mystery that would eventually come to light.  I cannot recommend this story enough. I thought it was a beautiful mystery but also a beautiful work about two women and the different paths that their lives have taken which eventually comes into a full circle.  I devoured this story and had to sadly put it down when life interrupted.  I plant to read more by this author!
