This Fiction Treasure title, set in New Brunswick, describes a community where conflict between families troubles the lives of everyone.
Gid Wyn and his fiancé Debbie MacQuarrie are counting on getting her father's fishing weir when they get married in Spring, but there is one villager, Tony Luti, who thinks it's his weir and that it has been stolen from him. Luti sets out to destroy the young couple's dreams and his hatred gets greater with the passing months, until one day, under cover of fog, he and his son take revenge. Frances Gillmor captures the raw beauty of the Bay of Fundy, bringing to life the daily routine of a fishing community.
