Summary
Lauren Clay returns from a tour of duty in Iraq just in time to spend the holidays with her family. She arrives home unexpectedly, and it's clear to everyone in their rural New York town that something is wrong. Her father ignores her odd behavior and the repeated phone calls from an army psychologist. Lauren offers to take her brother Danny on a trip to visit their mother upstate, but instead heads into the glacial woods of Canada on a quest to visit the Jeanne d'Arc basin, the site of an oil field that has become her strange obsession. What happened to her in Iraq that set her on this path?
Summary
The story of Lauren Clay, a woman soldier returned from Iraq, and her beloved younger brother, Danny, whom she has looked out for since their mother left them years before. Lauren is home in time to spend Christmas with Danny and her father, who is delighted to have her back and reluctant to acknowledge that something feels a little strange. But as she reconnects with her small-town life in upstate New York, it soon becomes apparent that things are not as they should be. And soon an army psychologist is making ever-more frantic attempts to reach her. But Lauren has taken Danny on a trip upstate - to visit their mother, she says at first, although it becomes clear that her real destination is somewhere else entirely: a place beyond the glacial woods of Canada, where Lauren thinks her salvation lies. But where, really, does she think she is going, and what happened to her in Iraq that set her on this quest?
