A new novel by Michigan author Shana Osler, Set on the Mackinac Island of 1899.
Atonement, escape, reckoning, advancement — each character in this adroitly woven tale ventures to Mackinac Island with a different expectation for the summer season of 1899. Some came to make amends or say goodbye, others to enjoy their summer cottages or the sprawling elegance and social promise of Grand Hotel. They came to bask in the cool lake breezes, to dance and play and relax. They arrive with no notion how two months on Mackinac Island will profoundly change their lives.
One of them never leaves.
