The Cottagers

By Marshall N. Klimasewiski.

When two families decide to share a cottage on Vancouver Island in Canada, they have no idea their relationships and lives will be changed forever.

This is a sort of spooky book, but well within the realm of possibility. (ie, not fantasy) It's kind of heavy reading even though it's only a little over 300 pages. It seems to be about relationships and how they change, and the little accidents that can result in a happy marriage or a catastrophic loss. I'm left wondering whether the change in their lives was already inevitable or due only to the events that happened on the island.

There are also enough things left unsaid that you wonder what other surprises might be implied below the surface.
