I was drawn into emotional depth of the characters, as their personal dramas played out during their interactions with each other. The setting is a perfect backdrop, and in fact seems like a character itself. This book is sad, funny, deep, and meaningful. Overall, an excellent study of human nature. It resonates with joy and torment.
For readers who like their fiction deep and meaningful, I highly recommend Disappearing in Plain Sight.
Disappearing in Plain Sight (Crater Lake Series Book 1)
Sixteen-year-old Lisa-Marie has been packed off to spend the summer with her aunt on the isolated shores of Crater Lake. She is drawn to Izzy Montgomery, a gifted trauma counsellor who is struggling through personal and professional challenges. Lisa-Marie also befriends Liam Collins, a man who goes quietly about his life trying to deal with his own secrets and guilt. The arrival of a summer renter for Izzy’s guest cabin is the catalyst for change amongst Crater Lake’s tight knit community. People are forced to grapple with the realities of grief and desire to discover that there are no easy choices – only shades of grey.
