In a move of exile and possibly self-preservation, Emmalyn Ross relents and sells she and her husband’s home. She moves into an old cottage that they had purchased 10 years ago. It’s located on Madeline Island, one of the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior. Her husband Max is finishing up a 5 year prison sentence and she wants to make peace with the situation because their relationship has deteriorated during his term. Emmalyn finds a unique and oh-so-needed cast of characters on Madeline Island. They help her find strength for the impending release of her husband.
Additionally, Emmalyn finds herself face-to-face with her husband’s 12-year old daughter out of wedlock. Although they’ve spent time together in the past, they have never developed a relationship. This is a great story of drawing strength from God and finding one’s path.
