GlimmerglassBook - 2014
Cynthia Sorrel, a painter in a creative rut, visits Cooper Patent, a hamlet located on New York’s Glimmerglass Lake. She rents a rustic gatehouse cottage from half-brothers Theodore and Andrew Wild, who live together in their ancestral mansion, Sea House. Hired by the siblings to paint a portrait of them, Cynthia feels newly inspired as an artist after spotting a young boy running through the woods outside. The eccentric, “shifty” Theodore unnerves her, but she is charmed by Andrew, a widower and grandfather. The two eventually marry, and Cynthia grows attached to his three young grandchildren, Lizzie, Drew, and Ned. She continues to be wary of Theodore, however, particularly after he creepily relates a story to her of how, when he was young, his cousin Moss was lost in the caved-in tunnels beneath the house. Eventually, Cynthia decides to explore Sea House’s subterranean labyrinth for herself in order to put the Wild family’s dark secrets to rest.
