Peter Geye has quickly become a favorite at Apostle Islands Booksellers, and we are looking forward to welcoming Peter and his second novel The Lighthouse Road. This is a beautifully written book that you will not want to miss!
"In 1895 Thea Eide leaves her arctic home in Norway for a better life in America. After a harrowing journey, she arrives in Gunflint, Minnesota, expecting to find her aunt and uncle and the life she was promised. What she finds instead is an enormous wilderness and a village full of strangers. Twenty-four years later, her son, Odd, is cobbling together a life of his own. A fisherman, boatbuilder, and bootlegger, all he wants is his fair share. When he and Rebekah Grimm, a woman as much his sister as his lover, are forced to flee Gunflint in Odd’s newly built boat, they leave behind the only world Odd has ever known. Told in alternating and parallel narratives, The Lighthouse Road explores the themes of love and family and what it means to live an honest life in a suspect world."
Where: A reading will take place at 2pm at Big Water Cafe & Coffe Roasters, with a signing to follow at Apostle Islands Booksellers.
