In this, her first novel penned as a widow, Phyllis Ann Karr (Mrs. Clifton Alfred Hoyt) imagines herself and her late husband as characters in a dialogue novel after the pattern of Thomas Love Peacock, giving them a new meeting in an alternate timeline very similar to our own. Loon Lake Lodge and all the other characters who meet there are completely fictional, the circumstances of their retreat weekend made up. But sprinkled throughout and blended in are numerous factual details, as well as fragments of actual conversations. Lavishly fictional though it is, Loon Lake Lodge is the author's most personal novel, and closest approach to autobiography, to date.
