MEREDITH — Lakes Region author Peter Miller will sign copies of his recently published book "So Fade the Lovely" on Saturday, August 10 at Moulton Farm in Meredith. Book singing will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
"So Fade the Lovely" is a mystery set in the fictitious Lakes Region town of Dicey's Mill. In this book, 14 year old Nicole Murdoch vanishes during a blizzard. Trackers believe that she skied out on the barely frozen surface of Lake Wonalancet, plunged through the ice, and drowned. Divers are unable to locate her body, and the search is called off until ice-out next spring.
Nicole's older sister Natalie finds suicidal writings in Nicole's bedroom. She hires psychotherapist Jason Matthews to conduct a psychological post-mortem. Did Nicole intend to die? If so, why? His inquiry produces surprising discoveries and an unexpected resolution.
There will be an opportunity to chat with Miller during the signing. Copies of his other book "Seven Canterbury Tales Retold" will also be available for purchase.
