    I was fortunate to receive an ARC of this novel, which follows multiple characters as their lives intersect over the course of a year At the center of the story is Ralph, an environmental lawyer who, at the end of his career, seeks to overcome regrets from his youth, rekindling a romance with his high school sweetheart, and finishing a canoe trip that ended in disaster While the novel is anchored by Ralph s story, each character is given space to become fully formed Lynn, the high school girlfriend, Jules, her son, Jean Pierre, her estranged husband, Monique, a Canadian politician, and Dieter, who has inflicted harm on others throughout his life Tilley writes with attention to detail and sympathy even for the most conflicted characters, infusing his novel with questions about the way the past shapes the present and how to balance responsibility toward the world and responsibility toward oneself.
