Eden Lake: Debut Novel from Jane Roper

Continuing my promise to showcase fellow authors (especially up and coming ones), let me take you back to your childhood, your days at summer camp. Jane Roper has revisited a period in everyone’s young lives and fast-forwarded to adulthood to reflect on an era long forgotten by many, cherished by others. Here is what the publisher says of Roper’s Eden Lake:

In 1968, newlyweds Clay Perry and Carol Weiss founded Eden Lake, a utopian children’s summer camp. Thirty years later, their marriage is long over and the camp has become a pricey playground for entitled suburbanites. When tragedy strikes, the Perryweiss children have to decide what role Eden Lake, and all that it stands for, will play in their lives. Abe, the eldest and heir apparent, has never been able to commit to a career—or a woman. Jude, entangled with a married man, must confront her turbulent relationship with her past. Eric, the youngest, who has never strayed far from Eden Lake, stands at the precipice of a new life. Idealism and infidelity, childhood memories and the hard truths of adulthood collide and coalesce in the summer of 1998 at Camp Eden Lake.
