Item Description...
When Portia sets out for a visit with her cousin Julian, she expects fun and adventure of the usual kind. But, on their first day exploring, they discover an enormous boulder with a mysterious message, a swamp choked with weeds and quicksand, and on the far side of the swamp . . . a ghost town. Once, the swamp was a splendid lake and the fallen houses were a resort community. But though the lake is long gone and the resort faded away, the houses still hold a secret: two people who have never left Gone Away Lake . . . and who can tell the story of what happened there.

A childhood favorite  Nov 1, 2007
One of my absolute favorites from childhood. It was also probably the beginning of my love for all things Victorian, as odd a starting point as it may be. I fell in love with the idea of finding a little town that (although only inhabited by two people) still functions like it did nearly a century ago. I think I even decided that I would name my future children Minnehaha and Pindar, although now I see that may not be such a good idea.
 
Wonderful!  Apr 9, 2007
Gone-Away Lake is an amazing, well-written, mysterious, exciting, suspenseful, and funny book.
It all starts when 10-year-old Portia and her 6-year-old brother, Foster, set off on a train to their Aunt Hilda, Uncle Jake, and cousin Julian's house. (Julian is the same age as Portia) They are spending two months there that summer, as usual, but this time, without their parents because they are on a seperate trip. When they arrive at the house they find that it is a new house and are very excited.
Just a couple of days later, Julian and Portia do some exploring. Aunt Hilda had packed the two children a picnic lunch, so, they have to find the perfect spot to eat. They soon come upon a HUGE boulder covered in moss, ants, and vines. So, of course, they have their picnic there. After a while, they find a mysterious message on the boulder...
After finishing their lunch, they keep on walking deeper and deeper into the woods. suddenly they come upon a rowboat in the middle of a swamp. Hmmmmm......... Julian climbs up onto the rowboat, and what he sees amazes him. Portia looks with him.... A GHOST-TOWN!!!!!!
The children have several amazing adventures throughout the whole book, and I, personally, couldn't put in down. I finished it in 3 days, and the very ending left me so very anxious to get my hands on the sequel, RETURN TO GONE-AWAY. This is an amazing book that is a must-read!!!!!!
 
LOVE IT!!!  Feb 24, 2007
I'm 12 and just finished the book today and was totally SHOCKED at the bad reviews!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have read Miracles at Maple Hill and I loved it and these books are very similar but in a good way, a very good way! I am convinced that all of the people who disliked this book were either disappointed because they rather idiotically judged the book by it's mysterious cover or they just plain old don't like to read happy books with happy endings or just don't like to read at ALL (which is beyond my imagination)!! I was supposed to read this for school but I started it early having nothing else to read and finished LONG before the date i was supposed to START it!
So it's not a horror or a thriller, SO?!?!?! So it's not violent or action packed, WHO CARES?!?!?! It's sweet and fun and I read it for hours! It is one of the few books I could read again!
 
Gone Away Lake (Thomas Haughney)  Feb 14, 2007
I read "Gone Away Lake" and I really liked it. It was one of the best books I have ever read. From cover to cover it was action packed and mysterious. I couldn't put it down because almost evey chapter ends with a cliffhanger! The book is about a girl named Portia who goes to her cousin's house for the summer. One day while exploring the woods behind Julian's house they discover a deserted town, well almost deserted. Two people live there, Mrs. Cheever and Mr. Payton. Together Portia and Julian have andventures, discovering some very old items from when the deserted town was a happy community. I would recommend this book because if I loved it, you'll love it too.
