Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twenty years ago, Jane Hudson fled the Heart Lake School for Girls in the Adirondacks after a terrible tragedy. The week before her graduation, in that sheltered wonderland, three lives were taken, all victims of suicide. Only Jane was left to carry the burden of a mystery that has stayed hidden in the depths of Heart Lake for more than two decades. Now Jane has returned to the school as a Latin teacher, recently separated and hoping to make a fresh start with her young daughter. But ominous messages from the past dredge up forgotten memories. And young, troubled girls are beginning to die again — as, piece by piece, the shattering truth slowly floats to the surface...

Review:

"A wonderfully eerie sense of place...deeply atmospheric." Los Angeles Times Book Review

Review:

"Hopelessly addictive...definitely the season's guilty pleasure." Time Out New York

Review:

"Like Donna Tartt's The Secret History or a good film noir...Jane's low-key narration has just the right tone to keep readers hooked." People (Page-turner of the Week)
