Tucked into the north Maine woods, along the west branch of the Penobscot River, is the fly fishing destination town of Roslyn. The river, and dozens of streams in the valley, are waters famous for the fish they hold. Ben Garrison, a beautiful, gentle young man with a skeletal deformity and a bad limp evolves into the most capable, accomplished hermit in town; he is a master gardener, a gourmet chef, a poet and a Zen-like fly fisher, and a confidant of the lovely farmhand Annie Nielson. After an unspeakable tragedy, Annie and Ben explore the dynamics of an unlikely relationship. Annie must discover her own destiny while coming to grips with her untold dreams, and with her conflicting commitment to helping on the family farm, all the while fishing for the salmon and trout that are native to the cold, clear waters in the mountain streams. There are life lessons within the minutes, and there is even a little fly fishing.

I never rate books as fives and this is one of the very few. Although a little slow in some parts with fishing details even though I love fishing I thought this book was truly excellent
