Summary

A beautiful young woman. An American soldier. A war-torn country. Nearly forty years of silence. 
Now, two daughters search for the truth they hope will set them free and the elusive peace their parents have never found. 
In the South Carolina Lowcountry, a young mother named Katherine Ann is struggling to help her tempestuous father by plunging into a world of secrets he never talks about. A fry cook named Lisa is trying desperately to reach her grieving Vietnamese mother who has never fully adjusted to life in the States. And somewhere far away, a lost soul named Ernest is drifting, treading water, searching for what he lost on a long-ago mountain. 
They're all yearning for connection. For the war that touched them to finally end. For their hundred years of happiness at long last to begin. 
From the beloved author of The Spirit of Sweetgrass  and Trouble the Water comes this generous story of family, war, loss, and longing . . . of the ways we hide from those we love, and the ways that love finds us anyway.
Available since: 03/02/2010.

    Peter Bannerman, veterinarian and amateur detective, deserves a summer vacation. Peter and his family head to a remote fishing lodge in northern Manitoba for a canoeing trip with his champion sniffer dog, Pippin. But a series of incidents color their plans. The lodge’s sled team of huskies has been poisoned and, at the same time, a floatplane crashes into the lake, killing the pilot and both passengers. While Peter works to save the huskies, it is discovered that the plane crash wasn’t an accident. It was murder.
    		 
    It’s been a hot and dry summer, and one morning the Bannerman family wakes up to find a forest fire spreading quickly. They manage to dodge the conflagration, making it back to the lodge before it becomes cut off from the outside world. Peter soon figures out that the murderer, who probably also poisoned the huskies, must be among the other guests or staff trapped with them at the lodge. The power fails. The now-enormous fire draws nearer. Can Peter discover the culprit in time?

    The ME ruled her death an accident. He was dead wrong.
     
    When Mary Jane Bennett is found dead in her bed— alone, strangled by her own scarf, and with every door in the house locked — the medical examiner rules her death accidental, the result of a sex game gone horribly awry. State police decline to investigate further, but Queensbridge Police Chief Caleb Crane doesn't buy for a minute that his good friend died this way, so he undertakes his own investigation. Facing town councilors afraid of bad publicity, an angry medical examiner, and his own personal demons, he labors to solve what he believes is the first-ever murder in his pastoral Berkshire Hills village. Complicating things: the list of suspects includes some of the people to whom he is closest — including his own wife.

    ~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~
     
    Edgar sits on the chair in the living room, looking out the window at the hot summer day. His shirt clings to his chest, outlining his hard pectoral muscles. The other thing that's outlined is the thick rod in his pants—theone that doesn't seem to want to go down. This heat will definitely do that, but what also does it is having his 18-year old daughter Katelyn at home all day, walking around and shaking that hot bottom of hers.
     
    Katelyn sits, staring at her History textbook, pretending to read.
     
    Edgar gets up and heads into the kitchen, intent on getting himself some water. But as he does he hears a squeaking coming from underneath the chair in the living room.
     
    "What was that?" Katelyn's voice comes, and she gets up from where she's sitting, looking around at the ground.
     
    "I think it came from under the chair," Edgar says to his daughter. "Come on, help me move it."
     
    "No way," Katelyn says. "If that's a mouse I'm not getting near that thing."
     
    "Come on, stop being a wimp," Edgar says, and Katelyn looks shocked for a moment, but then gives him a challenging look.
     
    "I'm not a wimp!" she says, and she gives her daddy a playful shove. He counters by grabbing her arms, and soon the two of them are horsing around, laughing and squealing as they grapple back and forth.
     
    Inside Katelyn's body she feels completely flushed. She's horsed around with her daddy before, but this time it feels different. In fact, ever since she turned 18 things have felt different. Her virgin core, for instance, is glowing with a deep warmth that usually only comes whenever she's thinking sexy thoughts.
     
    Soon enough they slow down and both Edgar and Katelyn are laughing. They catch their breath and look at each other. For Katelyn that feeling inside of her hasn't gone away. And the way her daddy is looking at her makes her think he's feeling it too.
