Against the wilds of sea and wood, a young immigrant woman settles into life outside Duluth in the 1890s, still shocked at finding herself alone in a new country, abandoned and adrift. In the early 1920s, her son, now grown, falls in love with the one woman he shouldn't and uses his best skills to build them their own small ark to escape. But their pasts travel with them, threatening to capsize even their fragile hope. In this triumphant new novel, Peter Geye has crafted another deeply moving tale of a misbegotten family shaped by the rough landscape where they live at the mercy of wildlife and weather--and by the rough edges of their own breaking hearts.

This book has a great idea behind it but not a lot of execution. Reads a lot like a prologue. Hoping that Wintering will provide the story I was looking for but I am uncertain of this...

I think I would have enjoyed this more if it hadn't jumped around so much.It was a fairly good story but it lacked continuity and the ending was a let down.

Seems like a good story, but I wasn't able to get going with the book
