For much of the year, some remote areas of northern Canada rest on land so precarious there are no real roads. They're accessible only once the perfect conditions appear. It's no different for certain people.
Some say life has passed Emily Moore by. They're wrong. She's just waiting for her moment.
And that moment arrives when she discovers her friend Daniel is missing and a stranger supposedly Daniel's nephew is living in his house. Emily has no reason not to believe him, but odd things are starting to occur. There are break-ins along Creek Road and no news from Daniel. Then there's the fact that his "nephew" seems more interested in Emily and her parents than in the family history he's supposed to be researching.
Welcome to Three Creeks, an ordinary little prairie town where extraordinary things are about to happen.
