The Lake and the Lost Girl (Paperback)
I keep saying that there must be something in the Great Lakes water, because there seems to be so many gifted Michigan authors! Jacquelyn Vincenta is one of those talented Michigan Authors! This book, set in "White Hill" - which seems a lot like Whitehall - hovers in both the present and is quite a thrilling read. The main character's husband is obsessed with a poet from White Hill who disappeared in 1939. The husband is sure that she lived beyond that time and wrote more poetry, and his search for proof of this is threatening their marriage. Lydia, the protagonist, has to face some serious truths while trying to solve the mystery of the missing poet!— jill

Lydia throws herself into the mystery, hoping to solve it and bring peace back to her home.
