A really well written debut by Heather Young. It's a slower paced book (perhaps just like a summer by the lake) that goes back and forth from present time to the Summer of 1935.

The story is about a family: a father, a mother and their three girls who vacation every summer at their Lake house in Minnesota. The summer of 1935 ends in tragedy as the youngest girl vanishes.

In the present day the Lake House is left to Justine, who inherits it from her Great-Aunt Lucy upon her death. Justine barely knew Lucy. But Lucy has left a journal about the Evans family and the tragedy of the summer of 1935. Through these journals, Justine will begin to unravel the mystery surrounding little Emily's disappearance. Justine's life too is in tatters. With these journals she will not only learn about the family she hardly knew but will discover how to restore happiness and direction in her own life.
