Beschreibung

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Keeper comes a “moody, suspenseful page-turner” (People, Best Book Pick) filled with mystery and spellbinding secrets.

Living on her family’s idyllic lakeside estate in Cornwall, England, Alice Edevane is a bright, inquisitive, and precociously talented sixteen-year-old who loves to write stories.

One midsummer’s eve, after a beautiful party drawing hundreds of guests to the estate has ended, the Edevanes discover that their youngest child, eleven-month-old Theo, has vanished without a trace. He is never found, and the family is torn apart, the house abandoned.

Decades later, Alice is living in London, having enjoyed a long successful career as a novelist. Miles away, Sadie Sparrow, a young detective in the London police force, is staying at her grandfather’s house in Cornwall. While out walking one day, she stumbles upon the old Edevane estate—now crumbling and covered with vines. Her curiosity is sparked, setting off a series of events that will bring her and Alice together and reveal shocking truths about a past long gone...yet more present than ever.

A lush, atmospheric tale of intertwined destinies from a masterful storyteller,
The Lake House is an enthralling, thoroughly satisfying read.

Die vom Dienst freigestellte Polizistin Sadie entdeckt beim Spazieren ein unbewohntes Herrenhaus inmitten eines riesigen Gartens.Neugierig geworden beginnt sie Erkundigungen über die früheren Besitzer des Anwesens einzuholen und nimmt Kontakt mit der berühmten Krimischriftstellerin Alice Edevane auf.Diese - inzwischen weit über 80 Jahre- hat das paradisische Fleckchen seit den 30ern wegen eines tragischen Familienunglücks nicht mehr betreten. Der Roman wird sehr spannend und bewegend aus verschiedenen Perspektiven und Zeitebenen (1933 und 2003) erzählt. Kate Morton ist wie immer ein Garant für mitreissende Lesestunden und unvorhersehbaren Wendungen in der Handlung.Dieses Mal hat sie zwar anscheinend unbedingt ein Happy End einbauen wollen,was etwas überstrapaziert wird,aber trotzdem ein tolles Buch mit verdienten 5 Sternen!

An old house by the sea, a celebration with many friends and a boy who goes missing. For seventy years, the house falls to sleep, abandoned, buried with a secret. When Sadie by coincidence finds her way to it, she is far from searching for old secrets, but as a detective, her interest is raised immediately and since she is on an involuntary leave and has nothing else to do, she starts researching on what happened to the family in the 1930s and discovers that false memories, the love for a child and the will to keeping secrets might be stronger than anyone could ever believe. Kate Morton's novel narrates to story from two points of view. We have the research in the present and the narration of the events in the 1930s which slowly reveal what really happened. Added to this are memories of the characters which sometimes prove wrong - this is what makes the story interesting from the first to the last page. The female protagonists are strong characters drawn with different shades and far from being perfect which makes them appear credible and authentic. Both stories have their interesting aspects and are good representations of their time and the struggles especially women had and have to go through. There is just one small aspect which for my taste was a bit too much and that the happy-end and the way it all turned out. Less would have been more here. Nevertheless a wonderful novel to enjoy.
