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.… (mere)

Daughters of the Lake by Wendy Webb is a 2018 Lake Union publication.

Believe it or not, this is my first book by Wendy Webb! I have a small collection of her books on my Kindle and I’m a huge fan of Gothic novels, so I’m not sure why it took me so long to sample her work, but better late than never!

This story has a dual time line, and features Kate Granger, a woman who has returned home after discovering her husband has been unfaithful.

She has begun to have some very disturbing dreams, dreams that manifest themselves into reality when a woman’s body, along with her infant is found in Lake Superior.

Kate has a strong enough reaction to that scene that it makes her a person of interest in the case.

Meanwhile, her dreams become more frequent, more vivid, and more intimate…

A century earlier:

Addie and Jess were fated to be together, but their love story takes a tragic turn.

Now, as Kate pieces together the facts, an unknown entity is determined to prevent the truth from floating to the surface…

This is an easy read, very absorbing, and atmospheric. It’s part murder mystery, part ghost story, laced with a little folklore.

I enjoyed the historical sections more than the contemporary threads, as is usual for me.

I enjoyed the book overall, though, and loved that twist at the end, that I did not see coming!

I’m impressed enough with this story; it has given me the nudge I needed to get started on all the other Wendy Webb novels gathering virtual dust on my Kindle!

Did not want to put this one down. The ending was perfect. I had tears. I was shocked. I cried some more. It was good. ( )

Audiobook narrated by the estimable Xe Sands. ( )

I can't say enough good about this book. It was completely enjoyable, and what's more, I was completely immersed. The book delves between two time periods. What happened in the past is having direct consequences in the present. It's unlike anything I've read before, and I didn't want it to end. The final chapter provided a twist I didn't see coming. Excellent reading. ( )
