What a wonderful love story. It involves family members for three generation and how their lives dovetail. The story takes place in isolated parts of New York state and Maine. The characters are very real. Sometimes you don't know whether to hate them, feel sorry for them, or want to hug them. The best part of the book is the last one-fourth of the book. I cried and cried. Big tears rolled down my cheeks. I wiped the tears away so I could finish the book. Read it. You'll love it.
