A haunting story about the destructive power of secrets, THE SECRETS OF LAKE ROAD is an
accomplished and gripping suspenseful women's fiction debut.
Jo has been hiding the truth about her role in her high school boyfriend's drowning for sixteen
years. Every summer, she drops her children off with her mother at the lakeside community
where she spent summers growing up, but cannot bear to stay herself; everything about the
lake reminds her of the guilt she feels. For her daughter Caroline, however, the lake is a
precious world apart; its familiarity and sameness comforts her every year despite the changes
in her life outside its bounds. At twelve years old and caught between childhood and
adolescence, she longs to win her mother's love and doesn't understand why Jo keeps running
Then seven-year-old Sara Starr goes missing from the community beach. Rescue workers fail to
uncover any sign of her--but instead dredge up the bones Jo hoped would never be discovered,
shattering the quiet lakeside community's tranquility. Caroline was one of the last people to see
Sara alive on the beach, and feels responsible for her disappearance. She takes it upon herself
to figure out what happened to the little girl. As Caroline searches for Sara, she uncovers the
secrets her mother has been hiding, unraveling the very foundation of everything she knows
about herself and her family. THE SECRETS OF LAKE ROAD by Karen Katchur is a riveting novel
that is impossible to put down and hard to forget.
