Set in Alaska, this novel by Sere Prince Halverson tells the tale of a remote town in the wilderness and its community of families. Kachemak Winkel had fled his home in Caboose, Alaska, a small village on Kachemak Bay, after his parents and older brother all lost their lives in a devastating plane crash. After 20 years of living in Texas, Kache decides one day to return to Alaska, to visit his aunt and grandmother and check on the old homestead. Little does he know there is someone living there, a Russian woman, Nadia, with a story of her own. They begin a relationship, and set out to heal the other’s wounds. This is a gripping story, with superb characterization and plot, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
