Publisher's Summary

It's been five years since the Mason family vacationed at the lakeside cottage in northeastern Vermont, close to where prize-winning novelist Samuel Mason grew up. The summers that Sam; his wife, Mena; and their twins, Franny and Finn, spent at Lake Gormlaith were noisy, chaotic, and nearly perfect. But since Franny's death, the Masons have been flailing, one step away from falling apart. Lake Gormlaith is Sam's last, best hope of rescuing his son from a destructive path and salvaging what's left of his family.

As Sam struggles with grief, writer's block, and a looming deadline, Mena tries to repair the marital bond she once thought was unbreakable. But even in this secluded place, the unexpected - in the form of an over-zealous fan, a surprising friendship, and a second chance - can change everything.

From the acclaimed author of Two Rivers comes a compelling and beautifully told story of hope, family, and above all, hunger - for food, sex, love, and success - and for a way back to wholeness when a part of oneself has been lost forever.

    "Great story"

    I loved this book, though I wish the narrator hadn't worked so hard to be dramatic. He sounded fraught, and that was distracting. He has a great voice, and will do fine if he relaxes a little.
