Twenty years ago, Jane Hudson fled the Heart Lake School for Girls in the Adirondacks after a terrible tragedy. The week before graduation, three lives were taken, all victims of suicide. Only Jane was left to carry the burden of a mystery that has stayed hidden for more than two decades. Now Jane has returned as a Latin teacher, recently separated and hoping to make a fresh start with her young daughter. But ominous messages from the past dredge up forgotten memories. And once again, young, troubled girls are beginning to die.

"History eerily repeats itself in this dark tale set in a private school for girls in remote upstate New York. Single mother Jane Hudson returns to teach Latin despite the fact that both her roommates died as suicides while she was a student there. Now girls are dying again. There's a lot for a reader to contend with here--two storylines, one in the present tense and one in the past; a gaggle of female voices; and descriptions of the lake, which is almost a character in itself. Vivienne Benesch handles these challenges with ease and makes of the many Latin quotes a language not dead at all. J.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
