Call #: GRO

For a modern take on the old-fashioned Gothic tale try this layered novel full of ghosts, non-threatening monsters and dark family secrets. Willie returns to her home town of Templeton, NY in time to see a sea-monster, long a part of town folklore, rising to the surface of the lake, dead. What follows is a complex story of Willie’s search through the town’s historical documents as she tries to identify her father and find herself. Goff then lets the dead speak for themselves as the story alternates between the town’s colorful past and Willie’s present.
