Orphaned by the sudden suicides of both his parents (who discovered they were in love with the same woman), seventeen-year-old Wyatt Hillyer is taken in by his aunt and uncle in the small town of Middle Economy, Novia Scotia, where he is apprenticed to his uncle's toboggan business and falls in love with his ravishing adopted cousin, Tilda. Setting in motion the novel's chain of life-altering passions is the arrival of German student Hans Mohring, carrying only a satchel. Tilda's feelings for Hans stir up tensions that will test the bonds of love, family, and community to its limits. Wyatt's personal account of the astonishing events leading up to his fathering of a beloved daughter spills out twenty-one years later.

I loved this book! The plot held my interest, the characters were beautifully drawn and the narration was perfect for the mood of the story. I learned quite a few things about how Canadians experienced WWII. Highly recommended.

A rich and rewarding story with fully realized characters. The story surprises -- even when certain events inevitably unfold. And the truly unexpected events are presented with such truth that credulity is never strained. This was my first encounter with Norman's writing and I plan to read more.
