One night the owner/operator of the Empress, a small movie palace in a small town on the edge of Lake Superior and nearly at the center of nowhere, took a drive down a snowy road and flew into that lake. The man who came out was not the same. He was not so different, but enough so that he called himself before the accident "the previous tenant". This the story about how he reconciled the two and reconstructed his life.
I liked this book. It was soft and gentle. Nothing of great import happened, but everything changed. People lived their lives and bounced off others in the small town, creating the improvements the town needed.
I received the copy of this book for this review from Bookish and an e-copy from Netgalley. That's how much I wanted to read it.
