    She would leave her husband_if she could find him.

    When Greg fails to return from a Canadian canoe trip, Libby is annoyed when a police officer questions the state of their marriage. Did Greg want to disappear? No fair. She should be the one leaving him. She's having a hard time liking the man she's supposed to love.

    With her father-in-law and her best friend, she plans to retrace Greg's journey. While they load up with canoes, cook stove, food, sleeping bags, they discover he didn't take his fishing equipment. That's ominous.

    Libby also brings along the trip journeys found in Greg's office. She reads of his confusion on how to reach her. She'd thought he hadn't felt grief at their daughter's death three years ago.

    While fishing for their dinner in the beautiful wilderness scenery, she has an epiphany. She realizes what's missing from that dust-free spot on his office shelf: his camera. He hadn't planned on fishing. He went to take pictures. Greg's stifled in his grocery store job. She didn't want him to leave his secure job, not with a family to support.

    By the time they run out of time and must return home, Libby wants Greg back.

    I love the transition from indifferent wife to loving wife who recognizes she hadn't been meeting his needs.

    The outstanding portrayal of the beauty of God's creation in the Canadian woods was incredible in this book. The author managed to literally take us on the searching/rescue trek with her as she desperately looks for her missing husband.

    Our oldest daughter lost a child at eight years of age and that death has scarred their family in ways we did not understand for years. The same is true in this novel and it is a tale told very well.

    I have always enjoyed light humor in novels and in conversation. A person, however, who consistently inserts comical twists in a conversation can turn the intent of the exchange into a verbal sparring that dilutes the original desire to communicate. I felt that way as I began this book--every page has clever, sometimes sarcastic, humor inserted into nearly ever passage.
