Forty-year-old Michael Saunders abandons his upscale lifestyle and shady consulting business for the wilds of northern Ontario when he inherits a run-down tourist lodge. In the course of renovating his boyhood home, he contends with wealthy mobsters, a series of natural disasters, and his growing desire for a stubbornly independent woman. Jake MacDonald's love of the wilderness and off-center sense of humour make thiscontemporary chronicle of self-discovery both insightful and funny.
