The remote Stehekin Wilderness Ranch, tucked in the heart of the North Cascades, is accessible only by boat or plane. Marketing brochures promise adventures ranging from kayaking or horseback riding to hiking or fishing.

Olivia hires former champion Croatian kayaker Luka Novak to guide, not knowing that Luka carries a heavy burden as a survivor of the Yugoslav War. She begins to have doubts about Luka’s past. What did he do in the war? What happened to his fiancé? What led him to this remote corner of the earth?

Even as Olivia buries secrets of her own, she fears Luka may not be all that he appears.

“Ms. Fink has written a fabulous, emotional tale about a group of people coping with change, each in their own unique ways, as they are faced with old and new challenges during their time on the ranch... Ms. Fink is such a talented storyteller that I can’t wait to read more of her work. I’m sure readers will love her ability to move them with her characters’ dilemmas and her fantastic prose.” ~ Seattle Book Review, Susan Miller

“A gripping drama, tightly written, with a fine cast of characters. Highly recommended!” ~ The Wishing Shelf, UK (5 STARS)
