A Book for All Seasons is excited to welcome local author, Teri Fink for a book signing for her new book, The Restless Lake... Learn more about the book and author below! Tech industry executive, Olivia Vandenberg and Olympic athlete, Luka Novak, cross paths at a wilderness ranch, where their secrets collide as they each struggle with the aftershock of their own painful pasts. The remote Stehekin Wilderness Ranch, tucked in the heart of the North Cascades, is accessible only by boat or plane. Marketing brochures promise adventures ranging from kayaking or horseback riding to hiking or fishing. Olivia hires former champion Croatian kayaker Luka Novak to guide, not knowing that Luka carries a heavy burden as a survivor of the Yugoslav War. She begins to have doubts about Luka’s past. What did he do in the war? What happened to his fiancé? What led him to this remote corner of the earth? Even as Olivia buries secrets of her own, she fears Luka may not be all that he appears.
