How a Woman Becomes a Lake

How a Woman Becomes a Lake


By a frozen lake, ten-year-old Jesse waits for his father.
It’s New Year’s Day, and his dad promised a fresh start.
But Jesse messed it all up.
And that’s when he meets the woman.

In the months ahead, the woman’s sudden disappearance sets off a chain of events in Whale Bay, spanning out like fracture lines into the lives of her husband, the detective trying to solve her case, and of Jesse and his family – a young boy cracking like ice under the weight of a terrible secret. How A Woman Becomes a Lake is a chilling literary mystery that asks what happens when we are failed by the ones we love.
