              In 1941, Anna Harker is attacked by an ax-wielding assailant in the gold-bearing ridges bordering the Alaska Range. It is this moment of savagery that propels the people of Wild Rivers, Wild Rose. Anna's lover, Wade Daniels, learns of the deaths of Anna's husband and their worker..., and he rushes to the hills to look for Anna and hunt the murderer. As she lies dying on the tundra, Anna relives the major events of her Alaska life while searching her memories for what could have led to the violence. And, decades later, an outsider named Billie Sutherland steps into a community still haunted by the murders. Plagued by her own ghosts, Billie delves into the past, opening old wounds. In this gripping novel by Sarah Birdsall, lives are laid bare and secrets ring out in the resonant Alaska Range foothills.

While the stories take place in modern-day towns, each is laced with a timelessness that comes from their roots in ageless issues: broken trust and heartbreak, hope and rebirth. The expansive Alaska lands...cape infuses the stories with a unique chill, as tears freezeon eyelashes and mountain ranges form the backdropfor breakups. Although the people in Amore's stories know how to survive Alaska's cold terrain, these characters stumble when trying to navigate through their own lives and lost dreams.

Old friends argue over the pleasures and perils of small-town life in "A Beginner's Guide to Leaving Your Hometown," and in "Every Island Longs for the Continent," a young family falls apart after moving to Kodiak. In these thirteen stories, Zach Falcon explores the burdens of familiarity and the pains of estrangement through characters struggling with their place in the world.
