In the winter of 1859, Lake House, a private asylum for genteel women of a delicate nature, receives its newest arrival, Anna Palmer. Tricked by her new husband into incarceration and declared hysterical and unhinged, Anna has no doubts as to her sanity and is convinced that she will be released as soon as she can tell her story. But Anna learns that liberty will not come easily. The longer she remains at Lake House, the more she realises that nothing is as it appears.
