    Summary

    Frank is a logger living a life of isolation up in the mountains of Seward, Alaska. Running from his grief, he has retreated so far into himself that he couldn't find his way out if he tried.

    Karen is an author who has rented the cabin down the way from Frank’s in order to get away and write her next novel in solitude. Having suffered severe writer's block, she's hoping that the quietude of Alaska will help her find her muse.

    After years of falling apart, the universe has decided that it's time for these two to fall together.

    "Frank watched her, with her head thrown back, fascinated. It had been a minute since he’d made anyone other than Curtis and David laugh. He was surprised at how easily it was coming to him—how relatively effortless it was to talk to Karen. He supposed, in part, it was because of her profession; he was sure that someone who spent most of their time studying people and writing dialogue would be a great conversationalist. But it also felt like he was dusting off the parts of him that used to be really good at this—the parts of him that were capable of making Maria laugh; were comfortable joking around. The parts that, while creaky and unused, were still there."

    Summary

    “pick up milk!!!”

    Frank almost dropped the bar of soap he was holding and stumbled back. His forearm had been bare for almost 2 and a half years now, the last message he ever received from Maria still burnt into his memories.

    He brought his arm closer to his face to inspect the writing. It was definitely not Maria’s; it consisted of scrawling, printed letters, whereas Maria’s handwriting had almost been cursive.

    He had no idea what was going on.

    Summary

    “Sorry to disappoint but Karen and I are just friends, sweetheart,” he said.
    “What? Why?” Leo looked at him dumbstruck.
    “’cos we are,” Frank shot back. “And that’s that. You’re too young to be askin’ me questions like that.”
    “Not too young to see a perfectly good opportunity when there is one,” Leo murmured back.

    Leo is determined to make Karen and Frank happen. A power couple, just like Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
