Achingly tender, yet filled with laughter, The Lake House brings to life the wide range of human emotions and the difficult journey from heartbreak to healing. VICTORIA ROSE. Fifty years before, a group of teenage friends promised each other never to leave their idyllic lakeside town. But the call of Hollywood and a bigger life was too strong for Victoria . . . and she alone broke that pledge. Now she has come home, intent on making peace with her demons, even if her former friends shut her out. Haunted by tragedy, she longs to find solace with her childhood sweetheart, but even this tender man may be unable to forgive and forget. HEATHER BREGMAN. At twenty-eight, after years as a globe-trotting columnist, she’s abandoned her controlling fiancé and their glamorous city life to build one on her own terms. Lulled by a Victorian house and a gorgeous locale, she’s determined to make the little community her home. But the residents, fearful of change and outsiders, will stop at nothing to sabotage her dreams of lakeside tranquility. As Victoria and Heather become unlikely friends, their mutual struggle to find acceptance—with their neighbors and in their own hearts—explores the chance events that shape a community and offer the opportunity to start again.

The Lake House by Kate Morton | Summary & Analysis Preview: The Lake House by Kate Morton is a mystery novel that centers around the strange disappearance of Theo Edevane, an 11-month-old baby, who went missing from his crib during a Midsummer party in 1933. The tragedy devastated his family members—all of whom kept secret their different theories about what happened that night—but Theo’s disappearance especially impacted Alice, his older sister, who was 16 years old at the time. Seventy years later, in 2003, Sadie Sparrow, a young detective, stumbles on the cold case while visiting her grandfather in Cornwall, where Loeanneth, the Edevane estate, is located. Sadie becomes intrigued and, with the help of a local cop who had worked on the case, begins to unravel the mystery. Situated next to a lake and near the woods, Loeanneth was the perfect setting for the annual Midsummer party hosted by Anthony and Eleanor Edevane, Theo’s parents. Unlike her older sister Deborah, Alice was not interested in the party, as she was completely consumed with her love for Ben Munro, the itinerant gardener… PLEASE NOTE: This is summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

It was a warm June weekend in 1931 when five people met coincidentally at a lake town in Minnesota. Three of the five were outsiders. Two law school buddies, James Lawton and Charlie Davis were in town on a lark, but immediately began noticing some strange happenings at a nearby lake resort. The other, Lindy MacPherson, had more serious business. As an inexperienced investigator from the Minneapolis branch of the U.S. Attorney's office, her task was to explore a rumor about an alleged gambling operation in the vicinity of Lake Minnewaska. It was supposed to be a simple job neither lengthy nor precarious-more to give her investigative experience while under cover as a travel magazine writer. She'd been observing the same odd occurrences in the town. The other two, a local father and son, John and Adam Bailey, had been ignoring these unusual activities and antics of the peculiar assortment of guests at nearby Chippewa Lodge like everyone else in town. It had been best to do so for the good of the community. Glenwood was thriving during an otherwise very diffi cult economic time all around the country. MacPherson's orders had been strict. If she were to find any evidence relating to illegal gambling, she would leave Glenwood and promptly turn over her findings to the state patrol or the Bureau of Investigation and let them handle any potential arrests. MacPherson did not have an exemplary record of following 'strict orders' --especially when prompt action was needed. Normally, taking on the mob would not be considered by anyone in their right mind. That weekend these five people made a decision. Circumstances required their immediate attention.
