The Lake House Book Excerpt:

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.

What was once her 'soul place' now stood empty and derelict. A concrete footpath cut through the garden, marking where the Berlin Wall had stood for nearly three decades. In a bid to save the house from demolition, Thomas began to unearth the history of the five families who had lived there: a nobleman farmer, a prosperous Jewish family, a renowned Nazi composer, a widow and her children and a Stasi informant. Discovering stories of domestic joy and contentment, of terrible grief and tragedy, and of a hatred handed down through the generations, a history of twentieth century Germany and the story of a nation emerged.

The House on the Lake Book Excerpt:

Rebecca York is feeling confident with a clear head, a happy heart, and a new plan in hand. Just back from spending six months in France, Rebecca leisurely walks around the grounds of her godmother's historic house on a Texas lake while dreaming of converting it into an elegant bed-and-breakfast and saving it from encroaching land developers. But just as she settles in to spend her first night at Maple Villa, a key turns the lock and the front door creaks open, revealing a man from Rebecca's past. Paul Drew, a distinguished foreign news correspondent and author, first met Rebecca nearly seventeen years ago and is still as charming as she remembers him. Except there is only one problem: Paul has also received a key to the endangered old lake residence from Rebecca's godmother and has already moved in to recuperate from a wound he received in the Middle East. But even as the sweet affection started many years ago between them begins to reawaken, neither Rebecca nor Paul can fathom the idea of giving up their individual dreams for Maple Villa. In this contemporary romance, attraction, passion, and strong aspirations bring two souls together in the face of adversity as an old house quietly awaits its destiny.

Lake House Book Excerpt:

In the same week in June, Samantha Sophia Schwerin celebrates her 22nd birthday alone, graduates from college, and has a great fortune bestowed upon her through unfortunate circumstances. For the past four years, she has been beset by attorneys, investigators, bankers, and questionable friends. She has glimpsed a part of a world she had never imagined. Alone and apprehensive in a sea of humanity, contrary to the worldview her parents were nurturing, she seeks refuge in books. On vacation at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, she is befriended by Edmund Jones, an elderly billionaire, entrepreneur, and philanthropist who perceives she is in danger, and she is taken to his secure estate—Lake House. Confidentiality is a principle at Lake House; the staff are on a need-to-know basis. A memo sent out regarding Samantha includes, “she is in trouble, through no fault of her own; we are to take care of her and keep her safe.” At the Jones estate, she meets the 17th-century Will and the 21st-century Will. Each, having a clash with the culture of his time, seeks refuge in an environment more attuned to his nature and worldview. The Jones family continues to be ahead of its time technologically but clings to the values and traditions of the past. How will the array of characters she meets in this environment help her through her profound grief and shape her life? How will she find meaning and a purpose to her life and the legacy that was entrusted to her?

Rainy Lake House Book Excerpt:

"Exiles in Indian Country weaves together the biographies of three men who cast their fortunes with the Western fur trade in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. John Tanner was a 'white Indian' who was taken captive and raised by Ottawa, and lived among the Ottawa and Ojibwa for thirty years, hunting across the northern forests and plains of present-day Ontario, Manitoba, and northern Minnesota. Dr. John McLoughlin fled the law in Quebec at the age of eighteen to work for the Hudson's Bay Company in the Lake Superior region during its two decades of war with the North West Company. Major Stephen H. Long explored the northern borderlands in a time when the United States aimed to take over British-Indian trade in its new western territories. The three men met at the HBC's Rainy Lake House near the Boundary Waters in 1823 after Tanner was badly wounded while trying to take his daughters out of Indian country, to save them from being raped by the white traders. Foregrounding this incident, Theodore Catton examines the events leading up to this fateful encounter through a Rashomon-like tale about the British-American-Indian frontier. Through these three colliding vantage points, the book describes the world of the fur trade: American, British, and Indian; imperial, capital, and labor; explorer, trader, and hunter. In its competing viewpoints, Exiles in Indian Country deftly crafts one grand narrative out of three and reveals the perilous lives of the white adventurers and their Indian families who lived on the fringe--truly the hands of empire"--Provided by publisher.

The Genesis of Reno Book Excerpt:

Over 157 years ago—before there was a Reno, Nevada; before there was a state of Nevada; and even before there was a Nevada Territory—there was a bridge over the Truckee River at a narrow, deeply rutted cattle and wagon trail that would one day become Virginia Street. There was also a small rustic inn and tavern occupying a plot of ground at the southern end of the log-and-timber bridge, catering to thirsty cowboys, drovers, and miners. The inn and the bridge were the first two structures in what would one day be a bustling metropolitan area, and to this day they still form the nucleus of the city. The Genesis of Reno traces their history up to the present day. The 111 year-old concrete bridge that was replaced in 2016 by a magnificent new structure was honored for its longevity and unique character with placement on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

For fans of Robyn Carr, Carolyn Brown and Debbie Macomber. Carmen Alvarez is the reliable one. When her vulnerable father’s livelihood is threatened, she’s the person her sisters call. Abandoning her job in Seattle, Carmen races home to the family vineyard her dad built up from nothing to set things straight. But soon she’s fallen back in love with the dusty sage hills, the turquoise blue lake, the fragrant June orchards… Maybe she’s not just home for the summer? Standing in the way of Carmen’s happiness is one very attractive obstacle: new neighbor Evan Hollister, who’s after her dad’s land. He’s arrogant, entitled and spoiled—everything Carmen hates—and she is all set to have a bit of fun driving him out of town so things can get back to normal. She isn’t ready for their relationship to get complicated… But Evan is the least of Carmen’s worries. The business is falling apart and it starts to look like Carmen might lose much more than just her pride: employees have quit, the bank keeps calling and everything her father worked so hard for is slipping away. As she is pushed to breaking point, Carmen will learn that her true family are the people who will see her through the worst of times, and that love can be found in the most unlikely of places.

Breaking the Silence Book Excerpt:

Laura Brandon's promise to her dying father was simple: to visit an elderly woman she'd never heard of before. A woman who remembers nothing—except the distant past. Visiting Sarah Tolley seemed a small enough sacrifice to make. But Laura's promise results in another death. Her husband's. And after their five-year-old daughter, Emma, witnesses her father's suicide, Emma refuses to talk about it…to talk at all. Frantic and guilt ridden, Laura contacts the only person who may be able to help. A man she's met only once—six years before. A man who doesn't know he's Emma's real father. Guided only by a child's silence and an old woman's fading memories, the two unravel a tale of love and despair, of bravery and unspeakable evil. A tale that's shrouded in silence…and that unbelievably links them all.
