I thought The Lake House would be a little historical fiction with maybe a romance and a mystery thrown in. But the whole is so much more than the sum of its parts. This novel is virtually perfect technically, in its voice, in the way of character and plot development, and most importantly EMOTIONALLY. Though I dislike flashbacks/ decades alternating in the chapters, it was the perfect manner in which to present this tangled web of intrigue, drama, war and peace, family, and love.
I love Kate Morton’s books, but have not read this one. I am looking forward to it now 🙂 great review
Thank you! Enjoy.
My mother was recommending this book to me last week. I’ll definitely have to get hold of it – thank you for featuring it.
