The Waters of Star Lake

Cover: 'The Waters of Star Lake'

Staff Review: "The Waters of Star Lake" by Sara Lindsay Rath

★★★★

Taking place in the great Northwoods of Wisconsin, this story focuses on 60-something widow Talie Waters, looking to escape her bustling Madison life for the quiet solitude of her family's rustic, lake-side cabin. Over the course of the summer, she is faced with many challenges to her quest of peace. First there is the danger of the area wolf packs roaming the land surrounding the cabin. This brings forth interest from both a respected wolf biologist and an area wolf hunter. Next she is challenged with looking after a wayward granddaughter, who she hasn't seen in years. And finally, two local "characters" recruit Natalie in their search for John Dillinger's lost treasure. What will Natalie find in her summer up north?
