1) Interesting plot and complex characters with a touch of sadness. The only part I was let down was the romance between the two characters which seems slightly flat comparing to the landscape and plot.
2) This is a contemplative, character-driven story, where the romance happens alongside life, and life for these two men is such that they must make difficult choices. I very much enjoyed closely following their thoughts and motivations. The setting was stunning; the story unravels gradually for the most part, and the characters are complex. This was a page-turner for me.

Money can’t buy happiness. Jacob Nussbaum knows this better than anyone. He's a corporate lawyer deep inside a huge New York firm, where he works overtime, sacrifices any chance at a personal life, and has been selling his soul for years. With a secretary as his only friend, he trudges on, until his whole world is blown apart by a manila envelope of photos―evidence that one of the firm’s partners is the dirtiest lawyer in one hell of a filthy business.
In search of the truth, Jacob travels to a small northern Wisconsin fishing resort. There he meets Ben Anderson, a brutally lonely man, who knocks him off his feet. Ben prompts Jacob to reevaluate his life. He’s a dozen years older than Jacob, still recovering from the death of his long time love, and doesn’t want to leave anyone a widower. But a jaded New Yorker on a soul-searching mission might be just the man to convince the grieving Ben that it's never too late to begin again.
