The injured souls who come to the lake and the camp on Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, arrive with low expectations, but desperate for some type of healing. In Chasing Down the Night, characters from the first two novels, such as Dylan and Lisa, still need to find some kind of resolution from their past, but the reader is also introduced to three new residents at the camp with their own challenges to overcome. The intertwining of their lives, along with the newly hired cook from Toronto, play an important role in the unfolding of the ensuing dramas.
There's a soap opera quality to the story line, which is carried artfully to the third novel. In the deft hands of the author, the story never degenerates into scandal or salaciousness intended to sell books. Instead, I find the intense dramas that converge on this outrageously beautiful place to be a road map for how we might all handle the mountains and valleys of our own lives.
From Izzy's quiet determination to ignore her own grief and traumas to Lisa's using her body to achieve her goals, lessons on coping, acceptance, and love emerge.
Ms. Guenette isn't content to simply write a novel of people's inability to express themselves or to cope with life's challenges. She addresses issues of race--in this case, of tribal loyalties and prejudices--and the psychic abilities of dear sweet Robbie, who sees what no one else can. Then there's the other injured soul out in the wild, but I'll let other readers discover how that fits with the rest of the story in a perfect symmetry with all the wounded lives who come to the lake to heal.
I miss these characters and hated for Chasing Down the Night to end. I want more, and I want more than anything to visit Crater Lake and be embraced in the warm arms of the people who call it home.
