The Lake House by Kate Morton is the mysterious and enchanting fifth novel from the number one bestselling author of The House at Riverton and The Secret Keeper.

A missing child . . .

June 1933, and the Edevane family's country house, Loeanneth, is polished and gleaming, ready for the much-anticipated Midsummer Eve party. Alice Edevane, sixteen years old and a budding writer, is especially excited. Not only has she worked out the perfect twist for her novel, she's also fallen helplessly in love with someone she shouldn't. But by the time midnight strikes and fireworks light up the night skies, the Edevane family will have suffered a loss so great that they leave Loeanneth forever.

An abandoned house . . .

Seventy years later, after a particularly troubling case, Sadie Sparrow is sent on an enforced break from her job with the Metropolitan Police. She retreats to her beloved grandfather's cottage in Cornwall but soon finds herself at a loose end. Until one day, Sadie stumbles upon an abandoned house surrounded by overgrown gardens and dense woods, and learns the story of a baby boy who disappeared without a trace.

An unsolved mystery . . .

Meanwhile, in the attic writing room of her elegant Hampstead home, the formidable Alice Edevane, now an old lady, leads a life as neatly plotted as the bestselling detective novels she writes. Until a young police detective starts asking questions about her family's past, seeking to resurrect the complex tangle of secrets Alice has spent her life trying to escape...

Review:

Bestselling storyteller Morton excels in this mystery set against the gothic backdrop of 1930s England . . . Morton's plotting is impeccable, and her finely wrought characters, brought together in the end by Sparrow's investigation, are as surprised as readers will be by the astonishing conclusion (Publishers Weekly)

Addictive reading (Mail on Sunday)

An historic house, a long buried mystery, a dash of romance - familiar ingredients for Morton's bestsellers... Delicious and chunky (Sunday Mirror)

A skilfully imagined story of love, loss and family secrets (Woman & Home)

Once again she delivers the satisfactions of all her best sellers . . . Mysteries at the core, they draw depth and appeal from her carefully applied layers of family, history, and moral conundrum. And that makes them perfect books for just about every reader (Library Journal)

Morton's moody, suspenseful latest is the perfect page-turner for a chilly night (People Magazine)

Similar in both tone and style to her debut, featuring the sort of expansive, absorbing, heart-wrenching story that is swiftly becoming the trademark of this Australian author . . . Morton's elements of mystery are always tightly-wound and expertly plotted, she remains one step ahead of the reader at all times, giving just enough to keep them guessing without ever revealing too much to lose the intrigue . . . It will transport you to the Cornish countryside, dissolve your trials in the face of others' and-most of all-make you remember why you love reading so much. It is Kate Morton at her finest (Reader’s Digest)

Morton writes with such page-turning ease, you can easily lose yourself in her world for days . . . a pace that's more mystery than thriller - perfect when you really don't want a book to end. (The Pool)

An absorbing tale of family secrets (Choice Magazine)

Lose yourself in this brilliantly atmospheric mystery-thriller. Fans of Kate Morton's sweeping epic books won't be disappointed with her latest monumental novel, because it's up there with her best . . . As the novel seamlessly sweeps backwards and forwards over seven decades, the story slowly and tantalisingly unfolds. Beautifully atmospheric, lush and multi-layered, The Lake House demands your full attention...this is truly one of the most engrossing and enthralling books we've read for quite some time (Heat)
