About the Book

It is seemingly another ordinary workday in an imports warehouse in Marietta, Georgia, as Burke Wickstrom unlocks his office door. What he does not expect as he flips on the lights is to see the dark muzzle of a DEA agent’s pistol pointed at his face. Moments later, Burke is under arrest, a suspect in a terrible crime. Released after his story checks out, Burke, now unemployed and uncertain how to move forward, sells most of his material possessions and decides to visit his elderly uncle, Luther, at the old Freeman Farm in northern Minnesota, a place that holds fond childhood memories. As Burke renews family bonds and embraces a simpler lifestyle, he agrees to stay and help Luther with the farm. But while on this new path, Burke begins to realize that life might be leading him just where he needs to be.
