Review: Daughters of the Lake - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

The ghosts of the past come calling in a spellbinding heart-stopper from the “Queen of the Northern Gothic.”

After the end of her marriage, Kate Granger has retreated to her parents’ home on Lake Superior to pull herself together—only to discover the body of a murdered woman washed into the shallows. Tucked in the folds of the woman’s curiously vintage gown is an infant, as cold and at peace as its mother. No one can identify the woman. Except for Kate. She’s seen her before. In her dreams…

One hundred years ago, a love story ended in tragedy, its mysteries left unsolved. It’s time for the lake to give up its secrets. As each mystery unravels, it pulls Kate deeper into the eddy of a haunting folktale that has been handed down in whispers over generations. Now, it’s Kate’s turn to listen.

As the drowned woman reaches out from the grave, Kate reaches back. They must come together, if only in dreams, to right the sinister wrongs of the past.

Daughters of the Lake
By Wendy Webb

Review: Daughters of the Lake

A woman investigates her eerie connection to a mother and child found washed ashore of Lake Superior in this atmospheric mystery from Wendy Webb.

Kate Granger retreats to her childhood home after leaving her husband. Soon after, her father finds a woman in the shallows of the Lake, tucked into the folds of her white gown, a baby. Kate has seen this woman before, however—in her dreams for the past many weeks.

As Kate probes her increasingly intense connection with this woman, we delve into the past, to meet a young couple whose love story turned tragic. Their own connection sparked when she was just a baby, and he, a boy who found her floating on the shores of the lake for which she’d forever have an affinity.

The two stories unravel in parallel, with sinister secrets coming to light that will converge by the story’s end. Kate must listen to what the past is trying to tell her in order to right a wrong nearly a hundred years old.

I loved the book. Loved the haunting, melancholic feel to the narrative. I guessed the connection early on, but the story came to life vividly with characters well developed to keep me glued to the pages. Steeped in myth and swirling with secrets whispered from the dead, this was a mesmerizing, moody suspense I very much enjoyed.
