The Lovereading4Kids comment

June 2012 Debut of the Month. Full of tension, this is a gripping debut novel with vibrant characters caught up in a complex interweaving of stories all of which are played out on the faraway shores of Yellow Lake. Etta finds the little cabin on the shores of Yellow Lake when she runs away from her mother’s new boyfriend and his criminal habits; Peter heads for the cabin by Yellow Lake from England to fulfil his mother’s dying wish by burying a lock of her hair; Jonah is camping by the Lake to get in touch with his Native Indian roots. Each has a poignant and touching story to tell and the strong setting of Yellow Lake gives it a great sense of place.
