At The Lake
Set amidst the turbulent times of the late sixties, this beautifully honest novel brings the period to life - from the clothing and music of the day to the controversies and personal choices surrounding the country's involvement in Viet Nam. Virginia McNally must choose the path her life will take - a path that leads to love with one of the two men who pursue her, or the path to her truest love, classical music. And both paths tarry for a while in a little resort town called Greenwood Lake, where Virginia and her friends escape the realities of unhappy lives by overindulging in the proverbial sex, drugs and rock & roll.
"Lou Grantt writes of love and loss with humor, wit, and charm. Her characters populate a landscape so rich with details of time and place that the reader is captured by every page. Historical (1960s) fiction, romance, coming of age--this book delivers and satisfies."
