The Woman in the Lake by Nicola CornickFrom the bestselling author of House of Shadows and The Phantom Tree comes a spellbinding tale of jealousy, greed, plotting and revenge—part history, part mystery—for fans of Kate Morton, Susanna Kearsley and Barbara Erskine
Lady Isabella Gerard, a respectable member of Georgian society, orders her maid to take her new golden gown and destroy it, its shimmering beauty tainted by the actions of her brutal husband the night before.
Three months later, Lord Gerard stands at the shoreline of the lake, looking down at a woman wearing the golden gown. As the body slowly rolls over to reveal her face, it’s clear this was not his intended victim…
250 Years Later…
When a gown she stole from a historic home as a child is mysteriously returned to Fenella Brightwell, it begins to possess her in exactly the same way that it did as a girl. Soon the fragile new life Fen has created for herself away from her abusive ex-husband is threatened at its foundations by the gown’s power over her until she cant tell what is real and what is imaginary.
As Fen uncovers more about the gown and Isabella’s story, she begins to see the parallels with her own life. When each piece of history is revealed, the gown—and its past—seems to possess her more and more, culminating in a dramatic revelation set to destroy her sanity.

The Musical Life of Frankie Presto
And when I began, I kind of lost interest. And therefore my awareness about bands, musicians and songs is pretty pathetic. The author here cleverly uses Music as the Narrator. You give me back upon departure. Those talents are with them for life.
Was Frankie Presto a real person? You've made this book sound so good! Kathy, I enjoyed this book a great deal! I don't want to say too much about Frankie but the book is fiction, after all. So glad to see another post, I've been patiently waiting : I haven't read any books by Albom, but after reading this I want to.
Mitch Albom collaborated directly with the artists to create a captivating companion piece to his prose. Our Secret — Ingrid Michaelson A haunting ballad that became a top ten hit. Many people tried to guess who Frankie wrote it for, but he never told them. He wrote it using a chorus hook he overheard a young female songwriter working on in a building in New York. He then surprised her by giving her co-writing credit and half the royalties. She never even knew about the song until it came out. Frankie sang it in French to her on their last night together.
