Last night I finished ‘The Lake of Dead Languages’ by Carol Goodman. It was actually a little hard to read after the flawless glory of ‘East of Eden’ because her writing was not as perfectly smooth as Steinbeck’s. The plot was intriguing, though at times painfully obvious.
The story followed the life of a woman Jane who returned to her private high school to teach Latin. While there she re-lives the horrors of her past as girls begin to commit suicide in a lake on campus. The story line had me jittery at times and the ending was pretty high tension.
I would recommend this book for plane flights, but not for rainy days.
