Desolation Lake (Paperback)
Life, death, and love converge on the ground floor of heaven.
The suicide of a brilliant student at an exclusive Los Angeles private school shakes the school's community. Leo, the girl's teacher and mentor, soon finds himself in the crosshairs of a powerful and vengeful school board member. And when he is accused of a crime of which he is innocent--or is he?--he turns fugitive.
At Desolation Lake in the Eastern Sierras, two miles above sea level and light years from the life he has known, Leo must confront his demons and make a critical decision. The unforgiving yet sublimely beautiful environment and the torments and joys of the human spirit combine to drive the story to its powerful and revelatory conclusion.
Desolation Lake tells two parallel stories: Chandler, the daughter Leo has never known, and her lover, Paul; Professor Leo and Father Tom, two men from different worlds. It is an imaginative novel that soars in spirit and language, the work of a writer who confronts head-on the human capacity for love while plumbing the depths of the soul.
