by George John Black

"Crystal Lake" follows the multi-generational journey of a single American family as they search for purpose and meaning in 20th century America. Focusing on the parallel journeys of George and his son, John, the story takes readers on a global trek of self-discovery where the deeds of each generation echo across time to impact the lives of their descendants.
Spanning generations and crossing continents, this is the sweeping story of one American family facing ordinary challenges amidst extraordinary events. Through every trial, they are continually drawn back to a single location, Crystal Lake. This family saga takes readers to the shores of Normandy during one of history's most consequential events, the villages of equatorial Africa rattled by political and ethnic upheaval, the drug-infested streets of Honduras, the peace and tranquility of Big Sky Country in America's Midwest, the ultra-modern skyline of Dubai in the Middle East, and the farmlands of western Ireland. Follow in the footsteps of a single family as they search for meaning and purpose in twentieth-century America.
