After an unscrupulous reporter falsely accuses Boston lounge singer Lily Blake of having an affair with a newly appointed Cardinal, she’s hounded by the press, fired from her job, and robbed of all her public freedom. The humiliation and violation of privacy leaves her no choice but to retreat to her rural hometown of Lake Henry, New Hampshire. In search of refuge, Lily forms an uneasy alliance with John Kipling, a former Boston reporter with trust issues of his own. Now editing Lake Henry’s local newspaper, John cannot ignore Lily’s appeal or her plight—even at the risk of taking on his former colleagues. Rewarding and unforgettable, a stirring novel of hope and redemption, Lake News offers an intimate look at the complex relationship between an enigmatic man and a vulnerable but spirited woman, both struggling to find a new sense of community in a place they once called home.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by GoldenjoyBazyll | 2/18/2014

    " Isn't in intriguing how lies are formed and take on a life of their own? I am certin that the one creating the falsehood never gives thought to the trickle down effect of their words- the wave of hurt they are creating. In this book, Lilly (one of the main characters) is falsely accused of having an affair with a Cardinal. The person fabricating the sory (lie) only thought of their own personal pain and drama. Because of one action so much saddness is created for so many that the wrongdoer does not even know. Saddness is dredged up/ old wounds surface for so many who are in contact with Lilly. Of course in the end- like in all good fiction- it comes together in a happily ever after. For me the afterglow of the book was something I always knew but it's good to think about- words have so much power. Better to choose them carefully and kindly. "
