Really enjoyed this story , but, it would have been nice to have Red in a real relationship with Anna showing that there is life after Rosaire. He tends to live a lot in the past. Anna has come to Cape Breton for a new life from California and she has certainly gotten that . She is fairly isolated and finds that she is "from away" and needs to find a way to become a part of the locals. I was disappointed with the ending because it left too many things up in the air. I know life can't be wrapped up in a little package, but, I like to see how things end and not leave everything up to my imagination.
