By the middle of the second decade of the twentieth century, Rene had reached her mid-thirties. Her life had fallen apart, and she needed emotional help. Lake Superior, her lake, was calling her back to the small shoreline town of Grand Marais in Michigan's Upper Peninsula where she had grown up. It was there that a nine-year-old boy named Alvie Wybel began to put Rene's life back together in a most unusual-and unworldly-sort of way.
“An historical romance novel with a twist; it fuses humor, suspense, war, and otherworldly phenomena. The expert convergence of fact and fiction, especially the Nazi occupation, is genius. The character development and writing style are exceptional. The plot is superb, as it takes an excellent turn (which I didn't see coming)." J. Ibiam for Readers' Favorite
