“In a letter to his daughter on her 21st birthday, Wyatt Hillyer tells his intense life story, along with that of his parents, in elegant prose belying astonishing events. After his parents' almost simultaneous suicides as the result of a love triangle, the teenaged Wyatt falls hard for his lovely cousin Tilda, while she only has eyes for the mysterious German student Hans. In a tiny Nova Scotia village during WWII, suspicion and violence play out along with the passions of this intimate circle of rich, distinct characters you will not forget.”
