Review by: Wayne S. Polls on May 26, 2011 :
Simply put, I loved this story and highly recommend it to anyone seeking a respite from crime dramas, monster stories, and those autobiographical tales of loss that seem to be everywhere nowadays.
Otter Bend Lake is a simple tale, eloquently told. The writing is filled with images and sensations that tantalize the senses. As I read, I could feel the warmth of the toast on my hand as the marmalade was spread. I could smell the coffee in the cup and the eggs frying in the pan. I could see the morning mist upon the lake, and hear the putt-putt of the small outboard motor as Bill made his way toward an unexpected conclusion. And I could sense and understand the love and patience behind Martha’s old blue eyes.
A story doesn’t have to have a message to be a good story, but when one does, it’s always a plus. And Otter Bend Lake has one. But it isn’t preached. We discover it along with Bill, at the end. The message is simple but important. The pursuit of that which eludes us often causes us to overlook the value of what we already possess.
