The Lake House is Kate Morton‘s fifth novel, and it has proven to be just as magnificent as her previous books.
Sadie Sparrow has found herself in a situation that is not agreeable to her employer, the London Metropolitan Police. As such, she ends up visiting her grandfather, Bertie, in Cornwall and finding herself engrossed in the mystery of the Edevane family who once lived at Loeanneth, a now uninhabited house. There are only two original remaining family members, Deborah and Alice, with the latter sister being a famous novelist. Do either of them know what happened to baby Theo, their brother that went missing during the annual Midsummer Eve party at Loeanneth?
As with all of Kate’s novels, she bounces between years (past and present) and characters, slowly but surely feeding us new information and keeping us waiting with bated breath as to what will happen next. The Lake House is an engrossing read, with the secrecy of the Edevane family eventually coming to the fore. The ending will leave you applauding at Kate’s cleverness. READ IT.
