Very quick read, great story between two very unlikely men. It actually takes a little bit of a spin that I wasn't expecting and turns out to be a pretty good love story in it's own way. ( )

Well written but not compelling. Just read beginning and end. ( )

This is quite a good book, and the basic story line appealed to me quite a lot. It's about a relationship between two men as well as the men's relationships with women. I thought it could have gone further, deeper, into why the relationship problems existed. I would read more of this author, however, if I came across them in the library. ( )

Mirror Lake brilliantly explores life, death, love, and loss against the backdrop of rural Vermont and the drama of its seasons.

Nathan Carter, a man in his twenties, moves from Boston to Eden, Vermont, following the death of his father and the end of yet another failed romance. When Carter's Jeep goes off the road in a snowstorm, seventy-nine-year-old Wallace Fiske nurses him back to health and the two become unlikely friends.

Wallace begins to tell Nathan his story, a love story he was prepared to take to the grave with him. It is a tale of passion, of obsession, and ultimately, of tragedy. Along the way, Nathan, suspecting that Wallace is not telling him the whole truth, sets out to discover for himself what happened here at the edge of this small mountain lake fifty years before.

In the process, Nathan not only discovers Wallace's dark secret, but also finds himself transformed by the experience, leading to an unforgettable conclusion.

The novel unfolds between each man's present and past, and reveals the loves and passions that have defined their lives.

Mirror Lake is a brilliant and suspenseful first novel about love, marriage, friendship, and betrayal.
