Nana raised Beth after her mother’s death in a boating accident on Rainy Lake, Minnesota, but Beth had thought she’d wanted more in life and eloped as a teenager. Now back, Beth attempts to reestablish a life for herself, including the mystery of her parentage to which her grandmother whispered clues as she lay dying.
The best clues are locked in trunks in the attic, and this is where Beth, with a curious lack of urgency, eventually sorts out her mother’s secret. Another part of learning to move on means casting off her ex-husband who is reluctant to share his wealth, and learning to love someone else, her neighbor, Seth, an Ojibwe artist, who had known and helped her grandmother, and kept many of the family secrets, which it turns out, weren’t all that secret in the small community.
Told through several running character viewpoints, this story of regaining identity and dignity, self-discovery, and appreciation of family is a good virtual trip “up north” to lake country.
This story is not the usual romance. The author has the ability to paint with words the beautiful scenery of that area together with the emotional complexities of people. The novel also acts as a guidebook in the areas of philosophy, Indian culture, rugged rural survival aspects and how to rise above no matter what, recognizing the fascinating melodies of existence. This is an unique story of romance, history, human frailties and strengths with the promise that life is fulfilling. Everyone who reads this book will remember aspects of the story that are unforgettable.
