When Anna Starling flees a dissolving marriage in California to save herself and her artistic career in Cape Breton, her life intersects with that of Red Murdock, a cabinetmaker who has recently lost the great love of his life, Rosaire. Surrounded by old ghosts and echoes of those who once lived in this isolated, now depleted community, Anna and Murdock discover that the present is inextricably linked with the past, and that both can lead to moral dilemmas.

Really enjoyed this story , but, it would have been nice to have Red in a real relationship with Anna showing that there is life after Rosaire. He tends to live a lot in the past. Anna has come to Cape Breton for a new life from California and she has certainly gotten that . She is fairly isolated and finds that she is "from away" and needs to find a way to become a part of the locals. I was disappointed with the ending because it left too many things up in the air. I know life can't be wrapped up in a little package, but, I like to see how things end and not leave everything up to my imagination.
