Loved this book as a wonderful, magnificent tapestry and map of the loves, lives and actions of the great and flawed people and characters in the fictional coastal town of Neawanaka. For the first time in a long while, I enjoyed this story's characters being not only the human inhabitants, but the animals, spirits and, especially, the landscape itself. Each as important as the other in completing the tale.
