The parallel world of Izzy Montgomery, both camp counsellor, wife and center of a circle of friends along with her husband Liam, brings the lessons of counseling to the broader community. My only criticism was that there were too many characters. It became a bit overwhelming to track them all. They were all interesting and provided differing personalities and types of people, but I would have preferred more focus on fewer characters. In the end, I felt like I had spent some quality time at the camp myself, gaining insight into how our emotions try to call the shots before our reason has caught up with us. Thank you for yet another insightful read author Francis Guenette.
There were many storylines to follow from characters I had waited for closure on. Lisa Marie and Justin are still trying to come to grips with their feelings and emotions. Izzy and Liam have settled into raising Sophie; Lisa Marie, and Liam’s daughter. Sophie comes across as a typical young girl, blessed with the love of a large family. When the child is forced to learn the meaning of love and loss, it was a poignant moment, raw and unfiltered.
Robby and Tabby’s friendship increases and the two have become inseparable. Robby’s power to see “light” around people seems to be mounting as he grows older. I am hopeful that subsequent stories will pursue his gifts in greater detail. That boy is a story all by himself.
As with any real-life situation, Micah Camp expands to include new people into the fold. With them, they bring their stories, hopes, dreams, and issues. As with all the books in the series, the family is shown to be the guiding compass in the lives of these individuals. It made sense for that theme to resonate since Micah Camp helps troubled teens. It’s all about making connections and understanding others while realizing that forgiveness is a huge part of life.
I have read the Crater Lake Series in its entirety and feel like the characters have become my friends. Francis Guenette has once again transported me to a part of the world with descriptions so rich, you feel like you can reach out and touch the flora and fauna around Crater Lake. I know the characters have touched my heart. If you love family oriented literature, you will love this book and the rest in the series.

However, this time I had trouble remembering all of the characters. New ones were added and some of the peripheral ones were hard for me to keep in focus. I don't remember this as a problem in the previous books, but in this novel, I felt as if I needed a chart to keep track of everyone. Also, as other reviews have stated, the "dialect" of Sophie became annoying. I understand its benefit as a plot device, but I thought it was overused.
All in all, the author is a riveting storyteller with characters who represent the microcosm of our world. It's all there at Crater Lake for your reading pleasure. It's a soap opera saga with a heart and moral compass.
I was given a copy of this book, and I voluntarily wrote this review after reading it.
