Literary Fiction

D.C. Troicuk

Estranged from his family, Dixon Peach never wants to see the farm where he grew up again. When he becomes entangled in his grandfather's scheme to build a golf course, he must make a tough decision that will ultimately resolve the dreams and ambitions of three generations.

 Living in Toronto, after years of estrangement, Dixon Peach is reluctantly drawn back into his family when his grandfather offers him an opportunity he can hardly refuse. If Dixon will move back home and claim his inheritance—the family farm in Cape Breton where he grew up—the old man will finance the development of a golf course on the property. For Dixon this means not just returning to the life he ran away from, but admitting that, on his own, he has been unable to find his place in the world—something his deceased father could see just by looking out his own window. He arrives to find the land where he has set his tentative hopes desecrated for profit. In setting things right, Dixon must come to terms with his resentment toward his father and his guilt over the death of his little brother. Only then can he make a choice that will not only determine his own future but bring full circle the conflicting hopes and dreams of three generations.
