Synopsis: As we move backward in time from the Great Withering to the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, and then forward into the future again, we meet an injured carpenter, an eco-warrior, a blind tycoon, and a Depression-era drifter. At the very centre of the book is a tragedy that will bind the fates of two boys together. From the award-winning author of “If I Fall, If I Die” comes a propulsive, multigenerational family story, in which the unexpected legacies of a remote island off the coast of British Columbia will link the fates of five people over a hundred years.

Read ahead: In May, we’ll be reading The Library of Legends by Janie Chang, and in June, we’ll discuss Five Little Indians by Michelle Good.

The event is finished.
