After Laura arrives in a small Northern Ontario community, she falls in love with charismatic Jake. Unlike his older brother, Arthur, he is unpredictable. Once Laura becomes pregnant, it is Arthur who stands by her and as time passes, Laura learns to love him. But years later, when the irresistible Jake returns, the old attraction returns, and the rivalry between the brothers causes a tragic accident that can never be mended.
This is the best book I’ve read of Mary Lawson.
