Going into this book, I thought it would be a little more earthy-spiritualistic than it really was, which is okay by me. It's about a woman who suffers a terrible loss, and runs away for a while, but eventually goes back and deals with her real life, discovering strength she did not previously have along the way. But it's not a wilderness story -- more of a small-town discovery story. She finds good people when she didn't expect to, and they help make her whole.
All in all a good read.
