This book was so wonderful! The concept of a bigtime corporate lawyer who turns on his client in order to save local endangered wildlife is probably ludicrous, but it makes for a moving and life-affirming story that will have you cheering on the main character and his family. Despite the title, which refers to the fact that the main character has married into a family of dowsers, the dowsers are really the sub-plot and the main focus of the story is one man's decision between his high paid job and his personal beliefs and love of his family.
