Kim Edward’s debut novel, The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, was a huge hit, a #1 New York Times bestseller that challenged and entertained millions of readers around the world – especially the LA Books Examiner.
Intrigued by the book’s horrifying premise (a 60’s-era doctor delivering his own twins decides to give away one of his newborns with Down syndrome and tells his wife their daughter has died) I was quickly caught up in the devastating consequences of the doctor’s actions and ended up, thoroughly impressed with the author’s decisions throughout the book, devouring this literary page-turner in one sitting.
Well, I’m pleased to announce that Kim Edwards is back with a new book called The Lake of Dreams, another complex family drama that I look forward to reading.
According to Edwards The Lake of Dreams is “the story of Lucy Jarrett and her discovery of a hidden past, glimpsed first through fragments of old letters and traces left in stained glass windows. Lucy’s quest through the artifacts of history brings her face to face with the dynamics she fled the summer after her father drowned; it compels her to make an inward journey, too, one that will alter her understanding of herself and change the course of her life.”
On Monday, January 24th at 7 p.m., Kim Edwards will be reading and signing her latest book The Lake of Dreams at
Borders Bookstore in Torrance
3700 Torrance Blvd.
