"In the backwoods of Nova Scotia, a man slowly withdraws himself from the world. He fills his days with planting a garden. Building a cabin. Carving out friendships. Falling in love. His nights are for storytelling. A saga of youthful passions, of idealism and hope, of science and rebellion. Outside the forests, news reports trickle in. A worldwide catastrophe is brewing. People are frightened. Governments are in turmoil. The future is uncertain. And as the story unfolds, we learn the consequences of believing we were ever ready to open Pandora's Box."--Jacket.

"At the heart of the novel lies an act of environmental activism. Rather than staging its geopolitical impact, Fotheringham unearths its roots and implications in the souls of his protagonists. Tender and thoughtful." Dan Vyleta, author, The Quiet Twin
