"It is 1938 when Eveline, a young bride, follows her husband into the wilderness of Minnesota. Though their cabin is rundown, they have a river full of fish, a garden out back, and a new baby boy named Hux. But when Emil leaves to take care of his sick father, the unthinkable happens: a stranger arrives, and Eveline becomes pregnant. She gives the child away, and while Hux grows up hunting and fishing in the woods with his parents, his sister, Naamah, is raised an orphan. Years later, haunted by the knowledge of this forsaken girl, Hux decides to find his sister and bring her home to the cabin"--Amazon.com.

Although there is a lot of sadness in this book, it is a beautifully written story. I liked the backwoods setting of Evergreen and the characters in all three generations who made their home in such a primitive environment. The characters from each generation are flawed but endearing. I was drawn into their lives as they tried to overcome emotionally scarring circumstances. Very good.
