More Description

A departure from his critically acclaimed fable The Woman Who Lives in the Earth, Swain Wolfe's second novel is a sensous and haunting love story set on a deep mountain lake in Montana.

After 25 Years Away, Liz, a Boston Career Woman, returns to visit her eccentric grandmother and to seek solace near the lake that made her believe the world was alive and aware. Among her long-stored treasures, she finds a primitive portrait of a woman that she connects to a legend from her childhood, a romance about a love whose passion sets the lake on fire.

The novel tells the story of the post -- World War II romance between Rose, a local waitress and a drifter named Cody. Their defiance of society's unwritten rules makes the lovers outlaws in an unforgiving time.

The Lake Dreams the Sky indelibly conjures a landscape of passion, shifting perception, and tile visceral longing that shapes our lives.
