"All things are bound together. All things connect." As far as Alexandra is concerned, that quote, attributed to Chief Seattle, doesn't do enough to explain the strange way that the good and bad in life always seem to get tangled up together. Her father, a man she's never even met, dies and leaves her with a cabin on a prairie, near an almost-forgotten Native American burial mound. What secrets await her there? And, as if she doesn't have enough to worry about, Alex meets Lonny LaFreniere there; he is haunted by even more ghosts than she is. Martha Brooks weaves a subtle tale of land, love, belonging, and forgiveness. Alexandra and Lonny are smart, real characters: they are both careful to protect themselves, and that's what makes their blossoming relationship especially moving.
