Gerald Woodlore and his wife Vickie have lived very ordered lives controlling everything and making everything run smoothly. They wanted no surprises, no ripples in their world. Even with each other they maintained a steady equilibrium and steady routine. Their son surprises them and heads off to Afghanistan for a year to handle water supply at a Canadian base there. This is puzzling to his parents but they accept this aberration and assume when he gets back life will return to its pre-ordained path. Not so. Each has to face a test that will force them to re-examine their lives. I was intrigued with the characters and had to read on to see how they did with their challenges. The author gave only glimpses into how things could evolve but such enticing glimpses that after I finished the book I thought about how the characters would have carried on.
