I was approached by the author to read and review this book and so I wasn't 100% sure what to expect. What I found was a beautifully crafted story with great nuance and charm.Both character and place drive this story of a young woman coming to terms with her own history and that of her family. I found the characters and the plot utterly believable and I was engaged with the story right from the very start.The prose is a delight to read and flows with an elegance and subtlety reminiscent of an older style of novel writing.This was a joy to read and recommended to lovers of literary fiction. I shall certainly be looking out for more works by this author in the future. When Jess Carpenter inherits her grandmother’s summer cottage, Journey’s End, on Michigan’s Pine Lake she embarks on a journey that reveals and unravels her families past. Interestingly told by the voices of 2 generations: Miss Mamie, her grandmother whose actions and secrets have determined the course of Jess’s life, and Jess whose buried past bubbles to the surface when she returns to the cottage where she spent her childhood summers. I read this mystery romance on Kindle and this early edition had some formatting issues, but nothing that detracted from the story. Great book for winter doldrums when you want to get away and your vacation is months away. There is a little bit of sexuality, and some adult circumstances that fit the nature of the story. The ending was nicely done and had some surprises that I didn’t guess, all in all enjoyable.
Couldn't put it down!
