The Haunted Lake by P. J. Lynch tells the story of Jacob - his father was a farmer, but when their town is flooded, Jacob begins fishing the new lake over the village.

He falls in love with a girl in the town, but a year before they're due to be wed, he's lured underwater by ghosts living in the village under the lake.

For 15 years, Jacob's fiancée fishes the lake searching for him, while Jacob lives underwater, unaging. Will a new marriage proposal help him remember his love for the girl on the surface and break free?

The Haunted Lake is absolutely stunning, with a heartfelt tale accompanied by P. J. Lynch's gorgeous illustrations.
