"Water inundates the lives of the characters in these Vancouver Island stories. A tree cutter, from atop a giant fir overlooking a sweeping ocean view, urinates into his wealthy customer's flowerbed. In 1923, a woman loses her husband to a coalmine disaster and, a hundred years later, a young mother protests a coalmine just as her estranged husband returns from the oil sands. In the retrospective title story, a middle-aged man recalls the anticipation he felt as a teenager while swimming with his cousins in a lake near their home. The ephemeral quality of life, like that of water, is revealed. People die, dreams are shattered, love and redemption are found in letting go."--
