“Crystal Lake is ambitious and epic work that at once encompasses large swaths of world history and deals with volatile issues such as bigotry, racism, and the evanescence of the American dream while very sophisticatedly tracking the personal and moral growth of a father and son.” – Award-winning author Ernesto Mestre-Reed
Spanning generations and crossing continents, this is the sweeping story of one American family facing ordinary challenges amidst extraordinary events. Through every trial, they are continually drawn back to a single location, Crystal Lake.
This family saga takes readers to the shores of Normandy during one of history’s most consequential events, the villages of equatorial Africa rattled by political and ethnic upheaval, the drug-infested streets of Honduras, the peace and tranquility of Big Sky Country in America’s Midwest, the ultra-modern skyline of Dubai in the Middle East, and the farmlands of western Ireland.
Follow in the footsteps of a single family as they search for meaning and purpose in twentieth-century America.
