Munro always delivers – stories that grip you and encourage you to keep on listening.  In this collection we following the different branches of the same family through the ages from their home in Scotland, crossing to North America and settling in Huron County, around Lake Huron -- Munro territory.  The stories take place “where the past shows through the present like the traces of a glacier on the landscape, and strong emotions stir just beneath the surface of ordinary comings and goings.”  I’ve fallen in love with Munro’s storytelling abilities.
