Summer Camp. These two words have been known to inspire many things in the hearts of young girls and prospective campers – from fear, loneliness and anxiety, to joy, freedom, and lessons learned that will last a lifetime. In Memory Lake by Nancy S. Kyme the author’s experience begins with the former, and is transformed by the latter. Part novel and part memoir of the author’s own transformative experiences at a summer camp on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Told in flashback as the main character Nancy drives to a camp reunion with her own daughter and her friend, the story will take the reader on an unforgettable journey back to their own teenage years, a difficult time for any young woman – and how the idyllic setting of the camp, her sometimes humorous and sometimes harrowing adventures, and the power of female friendships formed that will last a lifetime – can in fact change the form and direction of your life.
Anyone who ever attended summer camp will relate to these charming vignettes, and for those who have not – when you finish this book, you’ll feel as if you had.
