Willie Upton returns to her ancestral home of Templeton, New York after a disastrous affair with her married archaeology professor.
The same day, Willie discovers a hard truth about her long-lost father’s identity and a prehistoric monster is discovered in the nearby Lake Glimmerglass, bringing frenzy to the quiet town and her life.
As Willie investigates her family tree, dark secrets come to light, past and present are blurred and old mysteries are finally put to rest. The Monsters of Templeton is an extraordinary novel by literary virtuoso Lauren Groff.
