The Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards
A woman's homecoming, a family secret and an old house that holds the key to a shocking legacy...After years abroad, Lucy returns home from Japan. At a crossroads in her life, she is newly haunted by her father's unresolved death a decade ago. Late one night, as she paces the hallways of her family's rambling lakeside house, she discovers, locked in a window seat, a collection of objects that first appear to be idle curiosities, but soon reveal a complex family history. Old longings stirred up by her passionate first love soon lead her into the unexpected. And as Lucy discovers and explores the traces of her past, the family story she has always known is shattered - and then dramatically reconfigured, emboldening her to live with a freedom she has never known before. With surprises at every turn, brimming with vibrant detail, The Lake of Dreams is a gripping and powerful saga that's sure to enthrall the millions of readers who loved The Memory Keeper's Daughter .
