Summary:

"In ten interlinking stories, the town of Abbot Falls reacts as Ernie Whitten, pipefitter, builds an ark in his backyard. The community itself is struggling to survive as a strike at the local paper mill wears on. Few writers can capture the extraordinary within seemingly ordinary lives as does Monica Wood. Ms. Wood has created an unforgettable tapestry of love and hope."
