THIS DAY NEVER HAPPENED.
YOU HEAR ME?
By a frozen lake, ten-year-old Jesse waits for his father.
It's New Year's Day, and his dad promised a fresh start.
But Jesse messed it all up.
And that's when he meets the woman.
In the months ahead, the woman's sudden disappearance sets off a chain of events in Whale Bay, spanning out like fracture lines into the lives of her husband, the detective trying to solve her case, and of Jesse and his family - a young boy cracking like ice under the weight of a terrible secret. How A Woman Becomes a Lake is a chilling literary mystery that asks what happens when we are failed by the ones we love.

Beautiful and unexpected. I fell in love with all the characters. Celona had a knack at giving us wonderfully human individuals with all their flaws and hurts as well as their lovely hearts and their engaging ugliness. It was perfect.
