Award-winning author Yannick Murphy gives us a unique and loving portrait of rural life as one family’s generally happy routine is disrupted by a mysterious hunting accident. A father’s humour and resolve are tested after a freak shooting leaves his young son in a coma. As the father struggles to find the man who shot his son, he’s preoccupied by his own lingering illness and the calls he receives that send him out into the world to care for horses, sheep, and other animals under his charge as a veterinarian.
When an unexpected visitor asks a favour with profound consequences, husband and wife must come to terms with what it truly means to call oneself a family.
