A Reese Witherspoon And BBC Radio 2 Book Club Pick

'A new Ann Patchett novel is always cause for celebration ... and Tom Lake is one of her best' i

'This comforting summer read has it all ... Young love, sibling rivalry and deep mother-daughter relationships' Reese Witherspoon

'Filled with the moments I live for in a story' Bonnie Garmus, author of Lessons in Chemistry

'One of the most beloved authors of her generation' Sunday Times


This is a story about Peter Duke who went on to be a famous actor.
This is a story about falling in love with Peter Duke who wasn't famous at all.
It's about falling so wildly in love with him – the way one will at twenty-four – that it felt like jumping off a roof at midnight.
There was no way to foresee the mess it would come to in the end.


It's spring and Lara's three grown daughters have returned to the family orchard. While picking cherries, they beg their mother to tell them the one story they've always longed to hear – of the film star with whom she shared a stage, and a romance, years before.

Tom Lake is a meditation on youthful love, married love, and the lives parents lead before their children are born. Both hopeful and elegiac, it explores what it means to be happy even when the world is falling apart.

'One of our greatest living chroniclers of love and marriage … Expect wonder; Patchett always delivers' Elle
