Description

In the six years since she fled her hometown in Maine for the Alaskan bush, Bailey Lockhart has lived a solitary existence on her isolated homestead, supporting herself from the cockpit of a floatplane. The only white woman in a pristine wilderness owned by the local Ingalik tribe, she has achieved a peace of sorts with her native neighbors and with the natural world around her - a haunting, desolate land of brutal, bone-chilling winters and ever-present physical dangers.When two Easterners - a young man and his girlfriend - hire Bailey to pilot them into the bush, a series of events is set in motion that will upset the delicate racial balance of the land and lead to violence. As the truth behind the couple's arrival gradually becomes apparent, the cautiously constructed refuge Bailey has created for herself shatters. Forced to face the demons of her unresolved past - and the tragedy that brought her to Alaska, Bailey is given a chance to free herself at last from the secret that haunts her.show more
