In the Lake of the Woods


In the Lake of the Woods (1994) is a novel by the American author Tim O'Brien. Related to the Vietnam War, In the Lake of the Woods follows the struggle of John Wade to deal with a recently failed campaign for the United States Senate. After moving to Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota, John discovers one morning that his wife, Kathy, is missing. Through flashbacks to John's childhood, college years, and war experiences, as well as testimony and evidence from affected characters, the novel provides several hypotheses for Kathy's disappearance, without resolving the question. It was adapted as a made-for-TV movie in 1996.
