Like everything else at the lake, dawn arrived in its own good time. (from the first line)
From the Publisher:
After an unscrupulous reporter falsely accuses Boston lounge singer Lily Blake of having an affair with a newly appointed Cardinal, she's hounded by the press, fired from her job, and robbed of all her public freedom. The humiliation and violation of privacy leaves her no choice but to retreat to her rural hometown of Lake Henry, New Hampshire. In search of refuge, Lily forms an uneasy alliance with John Kipling, a former Boston reporter with trust issues of his own. Now editing Lake Henry's local newspaper, John cannot ignore Lily's appeal or her plight -- even at the risk of taking on his former colleagues. Rewarding and unforgettable, a stirring novel of hope and redemption, Lake News offers an intimate look at the complex relationship between an enigmatic man and a vulnerable but spirited woman, both struggling to find a new sense of community in a place they once called home.Lily Blake, forced home to small-town Lake Henry, New Hampshire, after being unfairly smeared by a journalist, begins an alliance with local newspaper publisher John Kipling, as they try to mend their wounds and find community. Reprint.
Author Bio
Barbara Delinsky
A native of Newton, Massachusetts, Barbara Delinsky attended Tufts University, where she met her husband, Stephen Delinsky, a lawyer who once served as chief of staff for the attorney general. After earning a master's degree in sociology at Boston University, she began working at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. She also worked as a reporter and photographer before taking time off to give birth to her son, Eric, the first of her three children. Working closely with the breast cancer advisory committee at Massachusetts General Hospital, Delinsky became committed to its goal of raising awareness of the disease, which took her mother's life at the age of 45 when she was only 8 years old.

Delinsky began her writing career at the age of 35 after reading a newspaper article on female genre writers. Feeling she could successfully join their ranks, Delinsky wrote her first romance, "Hills of Eden", in only three and a half weeks. She continued this torrid pace for the next 18 years, during which she penned 66 novels, many of them bestsellers. She began with a formulaic approach, constructing 10 chapters of 20 pages each, though she has since gone on to expand this structure. Her other interests include hiking, crossword puzzles, reading and, when possible, vacationing with her husband.
