The remote lake town of Little Ridge has a memory problem.
There is an island out on the lake somewhere, but no one can remember exactly
where it is—and what it has to do with the disappearance of the eccentric
Frankie Harpur, or the seven-year-old son of a local artist, Lee Montour.
When Thettie Harpur brings her family home to find Frankie,
she faces opposition from all sides—including from the clan leader himself, the
psychotic Doc Murphy. But Lee, her one true ally in grief and love, might
not be enough to help take on her worst nightmare. The lake itself.
Because deep below the island, something monstrous lies
waiting for Thettie, and it knows her name.
A tale of that most human of monsters—memory—Aletheia is
part ghost story, part love story, a novel about the damage done, and the
damage yet to come. About terror itself. Not only for what lies ahead, but also
for what we think we have left behind.
