Laurentian Divide: A Novel by Sarah Stonich

Bookcover for Laurentian Divide by Sarah Stonich

Monday, March 23 through Friday, April 10, 2020. Read by Jim Fleming

Bitter winters are nothing new in Hatchet Inlet, hard up against the ridge of the Laurentian Divide, but the advent of spring can’t thaw the community’s collective grief, lingering since a senseless tragedy the previous fall. What is different this year is what’s missing: Rauri Paar, the last private landowner in the Reserve, whose annual emergence from his remote iced-in islands marks the beginning of spring and the promise of a kinder season.
