Years later, Lara is married with three daughters, and her life is very different from the one she imagined for herself. When her daughters ask her about her time at Tom Lake, she is forced to confront the choices she made and the paths she could have taken.

“Tom Lake is a must-read for everyone who enjoys literary fiction and wants to learn more about the complexities of human connection, as well as for anyone who has ever questioned the decisions they have made in their own life.”

The Book Guide® Editor

Patchett’s novel is beautifully written and explores the complexities of love, family, and regret. Her prose is lyrical and evocative, and she brings the characters to life with her keen insights into human nature. The novel is both hopeful and elegiac, and it ultimately explores the question of what it means to be happy, even when the world is falling apart.
