A woman finds love while starting over in a remote Nova Scotia village in this "moving story of grief, love, isolation, and the elements" (San Jose Mercury News). Fleeing a dissolving marriage in California, artist Anna Starling travels to the isolated landscape of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia to start over. There, she encounters her neighbor Red Murdock, a cabinetmaker who has recently lost the great love of his life to cancer. Surrounded by the old ghosts of the frozen land, Anna and Murdock slowly come together just as the modern world encroaches on their town. When a local drug-smuggling ring starts to impede on their natural landscape, Anna finds herself caught in the crosshairs. Now, both she and Murdock must shake off the past in order to contend with the dark forces swirling around them . . . Part love story, part moral fable, and part quest for home and heart, this novel is written with an ear for the cadences of Nova Scotia and a profound understanding of the emotional shadings that exist between the sexes. The Ice Bridge is "a vivid portrayal of a setting and the renewal of love after loss" (Booklist). "When the book's quiet prose rises to the level of philosophical reflection and moral critique, it becomes a kind of meditation on beauty." -The Washington Post "Masterful . . . a moving story of grief, love, isolation, and the elements." -San Jose Mercury News "In prose reminiscent of D. H. Lawrence, MacDonald captures the almost hopeless struggle to comprehend the consciousness of another person and another time." -Quill & Quire
