Daughters of the Lake Reviews
This novel has an Alice Hoffman vibe, and it's set on Lake Superior. A wonderful novel with an optimistic view of life, love, and the afterlife. It's one part murder mystery, one part ghost story, and one part cozy romance.
One sentence summary
A haunting tale with gothic undertones...mesmerizing and superbly written!
The story is told in past and present. The past portion takes place in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. And even though this story deals with the paranormal, it is not a horror story.

When I decided to read spooky books for October, I already had the hauntingly beautiful cover art of Wendy Webb’s Daughters of the Lake in mind. Billed as a Gothic masterpiece with elements of historical fiction and the supernatural, Daughters tells the story of a family with a unique past, interesting local legends and a century old murder.
“It was finally time for the lake to give her up” reads the first sentence of this book. Effortless and evocative, I was disappointed to find that most of th ...more
But some stories, especially peculiar, hidden ones involving murder and mystery, have a way of bubbling to the surface, especially when wrongs need to be righted. They make themselves heard despite efforts to keep them silent.
This book has two timelines, at the turn of the 20th century and the present. I have to say that as much as I enjoyed this book, it was reading about the past that kept me turning pages. This is a beautifully written story and in each of the time periods visited, connecti ...more
There was something a bit twee about this story that kept if from being as good as her previous books. Still, a quick and spooky read.
