We are excited to welcome Kalamazoo resident, Jacquelyn Vincenta on Thursday, August 24th from 2 – 4 p.m. for a book signing of “The Lake and the Lost Girl.” This is a free in-store event.
 The Lake and the Lost Girl
On a stormy night in 1939, Mary Stone Walker disappears from her home in White Hill, Michigan. Everyone knew the talented poet was desperate to escape her demons, but when Mary goes missing without a trace, one question lingers in the small town: Did Mary successfully break free of her troubled past and flee, or did her life end that night?
Sixty years later, Lydia Carroll's husband is still fixated on the local mystery. English Professor Frank Carroll has invested years in the search for local poet Mary Stone Walker and her lost works, sacrificing his family, his reputation, and even Lydia for the ever-more unlikely discovery. As Frank's behavior grows more erratic, Lydia sees that his interest in Mary has evolved into an obsession-one that threatens to destroy the family they have built together, and which can only be undone by solving the mystery of what happened to Mary on that rainy night in 1939.
The Lake and the Lost Girl tells the riveting story of secrets from the past unraveling one family from the inside out, and two women, separated by sixty years of history, determined to pursue their dreams.
Jacquelyn Vincenta studied English and creative writing at the University of Iowa. Her first paid writing job was as a police beat reporter for a daily newspaper in Louisiana. Since her move to Michigan, she continues to write fiction and non-fiction, volunteers her time at Michigan lighthouses and supports local Earth-care projects. “The Lake and the Lost Girl” is her first novel.
