        This book had a much bigger impact on me when it was over than while reading.

         

        so much death  –  miscarriages, parents, fish, main characters, jobs.  This contrasted by the 24/7 trees.

        logging was required for survival – logging was literally killing them.

         

        I couldn’t stop reading when I thought Chub had died.  I was kind of freaking out!

          Yes so much death.  I too thought Chub had died.  So relieved he didn’t.  But the end wow!  It was so senseless–just an awful accident doing what so many of us do when driving–thoughtlessly reaching for something that fell off the seat.  I actually wanted to know what comes next for Colleen and Chub.

          The other death was the slow death to their way of life–to logging old growth forests.

              Agree, I was totally blindsided by the end! Definitely not a happily ever after. What do you think Colleen will do with the land?

                  I think she will try to have it logged to honor Rich. I think she also has to log it or lose the money already invested. Though logging may not be possible if a road doesn’t go in.
                  It is sad because not only is she mourning her husband but facing huge financial uncertainty.
