Description

In a town that lies along the St. Lawrence River, two teenaged boys board a makeshift raft and do not return. This novel, which recounts how an incident shattered the existence of an entire community, is, above all, a celebration of life. Written with a poetic sensibility, its power lies in the detailing of a simple life as reflected upon within a tragic situation. The result is a powerful literary work of the imagination.
