Recovering from breast cancer and stil reeling from her husband's infidelity, Mia Landan seeks refuge in a friend's long-empty cabin near Ashville, North Carolina. As Mia cleans, she finds the journal of 1920s renown fly-fisherwoman Kate Watkins, her friend's grandmother. Mia learns of Kate's affair with a married man, and that according to local lore Kate has long been the prime suspect in his murder.
As Mia reads more of the journal, she becomes convinced that Kate is innocent. As she works to clear Kate's name with the locals, Mia also begins to heal herself in the process as well as reconnect her friend with a grandmother she never knew.

A strong, emotional read with well-developed characters.
