The Glass Lake by Maeve Binchy is a book that was leant to me by a friend but definitely up my alley.
The book is primarily about a daughter as she grows into adulthood following the drowning death of her mother. It follows her into adulthood with a number of twists and turns. While the plot twists are a little predictable at times, the story is certainly one that draws you in. The author does a good job of putting you in the shoes of the main character and how the various events impact her. However, the book also seems to attempt to have the ready feel compasionate towards a character whose actions lead to considerable pain for other characters and this can create a bit of conflict in the reader.
Overall though, it was a good, nice easy read. I would rate it 7/10.
