The Lake and the Lost Girl by Jaquelyn Vincenta

The Lake and the Lost Girl tells the riveting story of secrets from the past unraveling one family from the inside out, and two women, separated by 60 years of history, determined to pursue their dreams. The author began her writing career as a police beat reporter in Louisiana and later founded and managed a publishing company, specializing in international trade publications. Today, from her Kalamazoo home, she writes fiction and non-fiction, reads a wide variety of literature, spends time on local Earth-care projects, and volunteers at Michigan lighthouses.
