An anonymous letter from a Very Disappointed Reader sends a novelist back to the lake where she spent her childhood summers in order to prove that what she wrote happened the way she\'d remembered. But the truth turns out to be far more complicated, showing that sometimes the story we think we\'re telling is another story altogether.When Kendra Brennan moves into her grandfather\'s old cabin on Hidden Lake, she has a problem and a plan. The problem? An inflammatory letter from A Very Disappointed Reader that\'s keeping her from writing her next novel as long as its claims go unanswered. The plan? To confront Tyler, her childhood best friend\'s brother--and the man who inspired the antagonist in her first book--in order to prove to herself that she told the truth as all good novelists should.What she discovers as she delves into the murky past is not what she expected. Facing Tyler isn\'t easy, but facing the consequences of her failed friendship with his sister, Cami, may be the hardest thing she\'s ever had to do.Award-winning novelist Erin Bartels searches the heart with this lyrical exploration of how a friendship dies, how we can face the unforgivable, and how even those who have been hurt can learn to love with abandon.
