The Lake of Dreams – Kim Edwards

This story really drew me in, despite being slow moving with lengthy descriptive passages. Lucy Jarrett returns to her family home to help out when her mother is injured, and learns that her mother is ready to sell the big old house on the lake and her brother is getting involved with their uncle in a housing development on the land. Lucy finds some old papers & needlework that suggest a link with the early suffragette movement in New York. She searches her family history for the story behind these items, exposing painful family secrets. The life story of an ancestor named Rose inspires Lucy to let go of her own past, make peace with her family, and move on with her life. (submitted by LL)
