Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

From the Booker-longlisted author of A Town Called Solace.

Orphaned young, Kate Morrison was her older brother Matt's protégé, her curious fascination for pond-life fed by his passionate interest in the natural world. Now a zoologist, she can identify organisms under a microscope but seems blind to the tragedy of her own emotional life. She thinks she's outgrown her family, who were once her entire world - but she can't seem to outgrow her childhood or lighten the weight of their mutual past.

"A remarkable novel, utterly gripping.... I read it at a single sitting, then I read it again, just for the pleasure of it." (Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat)

"Full of blossoming insights and emotional acuity...a compelling and serious page-turner." (Observer)

Wonderful Book

I loved Crow Lake. It was beautifully written story in which the author created fascinating characters whom I cared about deeply. Very well narrated. I’m looking forward to reading the author’s other books.

Great story, even greater narrator.

I enjoyed the story. Well written and easy to follow. The narrator, on the other hand, was out of this world. Amelia is, by far, the best I have ever listened to. I would listen to any book she narrates.
