Publisher's Summary

Kit McMahon lives in the small Irish town of Lough Glass, a place where nothing changes - until the day Kit's mother disappears and Kit is haunted by the memory of her mother, alone at the kitchen table, tears streaming down her face. 

Now Kit, too, has secrets: of the night she discovered a letter and burned it, unopened. The night her mother was lost. The night everything changed forever....

the glass lake

The story was interesting but tragic and could have been shortened. IT made me think there are many people with secrets in their lives about mistakes made and better left as a story untold.

Ms Binchy never disappoints

As always, well written, characters are well developed, you feel as though you’re in the book with them. Love the message of strong women triumphing. Definitely would recommend.

Tried twice

I just couldn't do it. I tried. For the most part I enjoyed the narration, until it got to the part of the young girls. It made me cringe everytime she voiced any of the 3 girls.
I do enjoy Maeve Binchy's books, but this one couldn't keep me interested.
