Description

In his "finely crafted first novel" (Booklist), Peter Geye evokes the savage beauty of Lake Superior's north shore and the bittersweet reunion of a dying father and his hurting son after decades of estrangement. When Noah Torr returns to his family's Minnesota cabin to reconnect with his father, he learns for the first time what really happened 35 years ago-and how it changed his father forever. "This deeply moving, powerfully realized debut novel [is] inspiring, wise, and enthusiastically recommended for all readers."-Library Journal

Professional reviews

"David Aaron Baker's narration is a perfect complement to Peter Geye's exquisite language as he immerses the listener in this story of redemption. As narrator, Baker's delivery is well paced, letting the listener easily follow a saga that moves from past to present and back again. Olaf Torr has the gruff, raspy voice of an ailing old man who hopes to reconnect with his estranged son before it's too late. Son Noah's voice is well nuanced as he and his father tentatively wend their way through memories of disaster, pain, blame, and neglect to find the love that binds them. Through careful vocal control, even the desolate yet starkly beautiful winter setting comes alive. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
