However, it is also a sequel to the top selling novel Survival at Starvation Lake and takes up where the first book left off. Susan, a 24 year old widow and single mother was facing a big financial problem. She had been on her own since her husband lost his life five years ago, only months after her father died.
Susan had spent her whole life in the Canadian bush but the local saw mill had closed.
Starvation Lake | Book by Bryan Gruley | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster
The saw mill's closing caused the local school to close for lack of students. That meant Susan would lose custody of her daughter Lilly if they didn't move to somewhere Lilly could attend school. Susan thought her only hope to find a job in the middle of a major economic recession was to move to Sault Ste. She didn't know anyone there and lacked the finances for the move.
Lost at Starvation Lake
Susan knew she would feel out of place in the big city and didn't want to move. The move seemed like her only option, until a mysterious stranger left her a large financial gift which meant a job wouldn't be essential.
This would allow her to move to the much smaller town of Wawa. The stranger left a note and a very large check, then disappeared. From the note it was obvious the woman knew a lot about Susan and Lilly but Susan couldn't understand how. The lady had signed the note Sally Sinhuna but the name wasn't familiar to Susan or anyone she asked. Months later the lives of this stranger and Susan were destined to become entwined.
