Beschreibung

The Lake House by Kate Morton is the mysterious and enchanting novel from the number one bestselling author of The House at Riverton and The Secret Keeper.

A missing child . . .

June 1933, and the Edevane family's country house, Loeanneth, is polished and gleaming, ready for the much-anticipated Midsummer Eve party. Alice Edevane, sixteen years old and a budding writer, is especially excited. Not only has she worked out the perfect twist for her novel, she's also fallen helplessly in love with someone she shouldn't. But by the time midnight strikes and fireworks light up the night skies, the Edevane family will have suffered a loss so great that they leave Loeanneth forever.

An abandoned house . . .

Seventy years later, after a particularly troubling case, Sadie Sparrow is sent on an enforced break from her job with the Metropolitan Police. She retreats to her beloved grandfather's cottage in Cornwall but soon finds herself at a loose end. Until one day, Sadie stumbles upon an abandoned house surrounded by overgrown gardens and dense woods, and learns the story of a baby boy who disappeared without a trace.

An unsolved mystery . . .

Meanwhile, in the attic writing room of her elegant Hampstead home, the formidable Alice Edevane, now an old lady, leads a life as neatly plotted as the bestselling detective novels she writes. Until a young police detective starts asking questions about her family's past, seeking to resurrect the complex tangle of secrets Alice has spent her life trying to escape...

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.
