Daughters of the Lake Reviews
Made it 44% and was so bored that I had to stop. I can't pinpoint a single thing why I was so bored with it, but I have some guesses:
-boring writing, absolutely no suspense for a single thing happening and we're talking bodies in lakes.
-I like alternating viewpoints, but this one had no differentiation of any of the women at all. A long heritage of woman after woman after woman and none of them vary.
-Lots and lots and lots of dialect. What is going on? I forget where they are because 8 pages lat ...more
This Is A Great Telling Of A Story And Lake Superior
I myself grew up on the shores of Lake Superior, and I can attest to the profound pull and power that the lake has. This book is an excellent testament to the stories that have been told for years about her capricious nature and the consequences good and bad that happen to people.
Wendy Webb has woven a spell-binding tale that I read in one sitting. I had to know what happens next. I find it hard to believe that anyone could not love this well- ...more
I really enjoyed this, from the rich atmosphere to the small town feel, right down to the strong family connections and bonds. And while this wasn't a scary read by any means, it was a bit creepy at times (mostly towards the end) and that was a nice change of pace.
Definitely a good mystery with a paranormal element, a hint of romance and something anyone would enjoy.
I'm so glad I chose this book from the Amazon Kindle free book for the month! At first I had my doubts, I usually don't go for haunted houses, ghosts, and things like that, but this is quite a detailed and intense novel. I enjoyed reading the way the author had it sectioned chapter by chapter, going from the past (1901) to the current times - and the main character was a suspect in a murder that, she found, was committed 100 years before when a perfectly preserved body of a victorian woman and h ...more
This is an absolutely perfect book to read during this time of year, it’s dark and gothic and heavily involved with the supernatural, it really read like a classic ghost story without the super disturbing horror type elements. If you’re the type of reader who doesn’t like really scary stuff or graphic details then this is for you. The mystery is on the lighter side and while it’s eerie, it’s not terrifying and will most likely not disturb you.
This flips back and forth between the present day and ...more
I'm between 4 and 4.5 stars.
"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. All in the proper time. And now was the proper time."
Kate's life is in total upheaval. Her marriage is over, since she discovered her husband had cheated on her, and as if that weren't enough, they had worked together, so she had no desire to go ba ...more
