Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"For many children, the summer of 1988 was filled with sunshine and laughter. But for ten-year-old Kris Barlow, it was her chance to say goodbye to her dying mother. Three decades later, loss returns--her husband killed in a car accident. And so, Kris goes home to the place where she first knew pain--to that summer house overlooking the crystal waters of Lost Lake. It's there that Kris and her eight-year-old daughter will make a stand against grief. BUT a shadow has fallen over the quiet lake town of Pacington, Kansas. Beneath its surface, an evil has grown--and inside that home where Kris Barlow last saw her mother, an old friend awaits her return."--Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Thomas' second novel tops the reading experience of his breakout debut, Kill Creek (2017). Hoping to help her heal from the tragic death of her father, Kris brings her young daughter Sadie to the Kansas vacation town where she spent a few summers as a kid, including the summer her mother died of cancer. But this is no idyllic vacation town: the lake has an eerie provenance, and in the years since Kris last visited, the demon of sadness and anger she left in her wake has clung to the town, not-too-patiently awaiting her return. Kris' unreliable narration adds a layer of dread to this well-built world that dives deep into otherworldly monsters and real-life tragedies. Every detail matters in this character-centered, psychological suspense story of mothers, daughters, and the lies and secrets we harbor deep within. This is a title that fans of best sellers Sarah Pinborough and Jennifer McMahon will love. Violet also stands as proof that Thomas is a horror novelist who will be camping out on library shelves for years to come. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
