Cradle Lake
When Alan Hammerstun inherits a quaint ranch house nestled in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains, he seizes the opportunity to take his wife, Heather, away from New York. The couple has been haunted by the aftermath of two miscarriages, and the rural North Carolina town is just what they need to start over. For a while, everything seems perfect. Too perfect, in fact. The neighbors are young, handsome, and healthy and everyone is very friendly. But the town harbors a secret--one that seems like a gift, yet comes at a steep price...

From Library Staff

While the story of a man dealing with his depressed, suicidal wife as well as his own demons may seem like a downer of a read, it is poetic and singularly beautiful in its depiction of a man trying to keep his family and his own sanity together in the foggy North Carolina wilderness.
