    What s buried beneath the Loomis town pond The members of the Mayborn family are the local outcasts in this small upstate New York town When young June Mayborn starts a fire that accidentally kills Joseph, the aged guru of a once thriving commune near the town, the ex hippies return for the memorial service Complex relationships unravel as the mystery unfolds in a story full of strange and creepy characters.

    I really enjoyed this novel, and it got the full five stars because I think it will stick with me for a while Brooding, atmospheric, with a real sense of how stifling the community has become for the Mayborn family, and June in particular Intricate plotting entranced me, rounded characterisation triggered my empathy, and exquisite descriptions of the scenery sent me right there Lovely.
