There was no proof, but there was small town certainty, which is stronger than proof.

A timeless coming-of-age tale set in a small rural community. It's 1970s Canada. The small island community of Bear Lake is awash with rumors of layoffs and wildcat strikes at the mill. But for young Tom, nothing is more important than hanging out with his best friend, Cormic, except perhaps catching a glimpse of Sasha Dovonovitch, the foreman's daughter.

When a tragic accident occurs at the mill, the whole community unites – but in a small town, pointed fingers and hushed gossip can only stir further trouble.

"Prendiville's writing lifts the curtain on the contradictions of the human soul." --Benoit Breville, journalist, Le Monde Diplomatique

"The unsettling culmination leaves ripples for years to come." --Fiona Vigo Marshall, author, Find Me Falling
