Two solitary people meet each other and form a bond in the back country of the Gaspe peninsula.
One comment from Amazon: "If the other reviewers are right and Siegel's prior work is even better, I can't wait to read those novels. Siegel kept me half a step behind every minute, as his narrator Tom Valle sought redemption and tried to figure out what had happened in the flooded town north of his home of exile. Characterization was terrific for everybody, the narrator was legitimately sympathetic and suspiciously unreliable to keep me wondering, and everyone in the story acted in ways that were completely believable. This is a fantastic story."
