This is the end of the road, but if you turn around, it's the beginning a Everything is connected, somehow. In the small rural community of Deloume Road, deep in the remote beauty of Vancouver Island, the inhabitants have their individual secrets, their unique anxieties. So many of them seem alien to one another u a pregnant Korean widowed by a faraway war; a lonely Ukrainian immigrant butcher; a Native American artist. But even here, there are fragile bonds and affinities which hold people together. There are also more sinister connections. In the intense August heat, the local kids, Matthew, Andy and Josh, spend their time on bicycles, exploring the woods and secret places, ignoring the ghostly boy Miles Ford, who's almost invisible anyway. Soon, though, a chance discovery sets off a terrible sequence of events, forever entwining these young lives with that of Gerard Deloume, the town's long-dead founder. A magical, haunting novel, Deloume Road is a journey into a community whose stories you will never forget.
