Bitter winters are nothing new in Hatchet Inlet, hard up against the ridge of the Laurentian Divide, but the advent of spring can’t thaw the community’s collective grief, lingering since a senseless tragedy the previous fall. Weaving in and out of each other’s reach, trying hard to do their best (all the while wondering what that might be), the residents of this remote town in all their sweetness and sorrow remind us once more of the inescapable lurches of the heart and unexpected turns of our human comedy.

"Hilarious, smart, moving, and kind, Laurentian Divide is good for the soul, or anyway, it was good for mine." —Richard Russo

"There aren’t many writers on the planet who can take a reader’s heart apart and put it back together again with the sureness of Sarah Stonich, who does exactly that over and over again in Laurentian Divide, her best yet. Funny and wise in equal measure, here’s a novel for everyone. What a treasure." —Peter Geye, author of Wintering

"Laurentian Divide is rich, funny, and overflowing with life—Sarah Stonich at the top of her powers." —Will Weaver, author of Sweet Land

"With a nimble hand and wry voice, Sarah Stonich pilots this generous tale—incisive, musical, and spiced with pungent observation so that Laurentian Divide becomes the best sort of trip." —Leif Enger, author of Peace Like a River and Virgil Wander
