Wilde Lake. First, Lippman captures a vivid sense of place, and in this novel Columbia, Maryland is rendered with great skill. Second, the characters are always compelling in a Lippman novel, and this novel is no exception. We care about them, and come to understand them in all of their complexity. Third, we can count on Lippman to structure a plot that will maintain our interest from beginning to end. She does that in this novel with great skill. There are secrets at the core of this story, and by the time those secrets are revealed, we know the place, we care about the characters, and we appreciate what the revelation of the secrets will entail. If these are qualities that you like to see in a novel, consider reading this book. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Wilde Lake from amazon.com.
