Black Lake is a
debut novel about a family losing grip of its legacy: a majestic house on the
cliffs of Ireland.
The Campbells have lived happily at Dulough—an idyllic,
rambling estate isolated on the Irish seaside—for generations. But upkeep has
drained the family coffers, and so John Campbell must be bold: to keep Dulough,
he will open its doors to the public as a museum. He and his wife, daughter,
and son will move from the luxury of the big house to a dank, small caretaker’s
cottage. The upheaval strains the already tenuous threads that bind the family
and, when a tragic accident befalls them, long-simmering resentments and
unanswered yearnings surface.
As each character is given a turn to speak, their voices
tell a complicated, fascinating story about what happens when the upstairs
becomes the downstairs, and what legacy is left when family secrets are
revealed. Download and start listening now!
