In this novel that reads like a memoir, we follow the story of a young couple who leave their city life to become caretakers of an in nestled deep in the Adirondacks. In is a deeply personal tale, told from the husband's perspective. He describes in detail the struggles of their first year, and the many interesting people they encounter, but mostly it is about their relationship, their love for one another, and their desire to have a child.  After the birth of their daughter, it seems their life can't get much better. Their idyllic world is shattered one night by a drunk driver, and once again, a weighty decision is upon him. Should he move his back to the city, near family and old friends, or stay put in this beautiful, peaceful place that has become home? I really enjoyed the detailed descriptions of the landscapes and day-to-day running of the inn. The emotional depth of the story stayed with me long after I'd finished reading.
