Tom Lake Summary
• The three Nelson daughters are distinct, and their unique qualities are as worthy of discerning as the March sisters in Little Women.
Tom Lake Review
• Tom Lake is one of those books that starts off very good, then gets better and better as you become more immersed and invested in the story of Lara.
• The voice of Lara comes across so tenderly, and the voices of the other characters never felt forced.
SHOULD I READ OUR TOWN BEFORE READING TOM LAKE?
• Yes. The plot, characters, and themes of Our Town by Thornton Wilder feature heavily in Tom Lake by Ann Patchett.
