Book of the Week #10

Lake People by Abi Maxwell (NY: Knopf, 2013)
Lake People is a haunting, luminous novel set in a small New Hampshire town. As an infant, Alice Thornton was discovered in Kettleborough, in a boathouse by the lake, adopted by a young childless couple, and raised with no knowledge of the women who came before her. As Alice edges ever closer to her past, Lake People beautifully evokes the interweaving of family history and individual fate, and the intangible connections we feel to the place where we were born. (excerpted from the publisher's blurb)
I haven't gotten this book read yet, but it is popping up all over the place (a StarTribute review, an LJ review, a Booklist Review, a profile in the TV section of the Sunday Union Leader ...) and there are several upcoming events at local bookstores with Abi Maxwell:
