Growing up in the 1930s, Addie Beale knows little of the outside world or the looming shadows of a second World War, believing that everything she could ever want or need is to be found on her grandfather's cattle ranch or in the little town called Sorry twelve bush miles away. Only later will she learn that her grandfather has lived with his own secret torment for more than seventy years. It will take his slipping into blindness and dementia before the dark spectre from his past emerges, leaving her the one responsible for its consequences. And when that day arrives, when Chauncey Beale's past intersects with Addie's present, it will change her future in ways that she, and those she loves, could never have imagined.

Really interesting book that I enjoyed especially because it focuses on BC history. There are two storylines - one that takes place in 1864/65 and one in the 1930s and 40s. Recommended if you like Canadian history and especially BC history.

This book wins the "Drabbest Cover But Actually Good Story" award. I read it for Book Club and we were all like ... uh ... when we saw it, but all of us liked it!
