This book was written in a reverse order than The Memory Keeper's Daughter. Each deals with a decision that has far reaching implications for a family across many years. The Memory Keeper's Daughter starts with the decision and tells the story of its effects. The Lake of Dreams starts with a family and goes back with gradual revelation of a story and a decision. It ties together when the final piece of the puzzle is revealed towards the end. I enjoyed both books, but overall like the approach of the Memory Keeper's Daughter better.
