In this book you will travel to a northern Michigan town that is still charming and rustic, and brilliantly captures lives that have been marked by loss, perseverance, an abiding faith and the love of friends and family as it sojourns between sentiment and satire. You will hear an unaccustomed rhythm in the voices of the Whispering Pines Inn as it is recounted here in loving detail. Cynthia Williams delivers an unforgettable story about an unforgettable boy and girl coming of age in pre-World War II America and East Jordan Michigan along the shores of Lake Charlevoix. It’s 1963 now, and Maggie inherits the ramshackle Inn. Cynthia Williams gives her readers, and her characters, precisely what they crave–excitement, insight, joy, humor, hard reality, surprise, loyalty, hope, closure and a sweet but uncompromising view of human nature.
