A Novel
“Enormously readable. The audience that enjoyed Star Lake
Saloon will come back for more, and those who start this
novel will want to enjoy the first one. Visiting the North as
Sara Rath re-creates it is a welcome treat.”
—Jim Fleming, reader for “Chapter a Day” on Wisconsin Public Radio
Newly widowed Natalie Waters expects only nostalgia and solitude at
her quiet, rustic cabin. But the wilderness conceals more than one
perilous mystery. Where in Wisconsin’s Northwoods did the notorious
gangster John Dillinger hide $210,000 following a violent FBI
shootout? And why do the local timber wolves incite so much rage
among Natalie’s neighbors?
As predators circle and howl in the dark, Ginger, the bartender
at the nearby Star Lake Saloon, draws Natalie deep into the secrets
not only of Dillinger but of the ecologies of family, forest, and heart.
With the reluctant support of her granddaughter and advice from a
handsome wolf biologist, Natalie is forced to choose between adversity
and adventure.
Sara Rath continues her popular Northwoods saga in this affirm-
ing and often humorous tale of romance, betrayal, and danger.
“With the patient skill of an engaging storyteller, Sara Rath brings to
life the charm of northern Wisconsin. The appreciative reader is soon
breathing in balsam and pine, living in primitive cabins next to the
lake, listening to loons, finding unlikely romance, encountering
wolves, bears, a lively group of endearing local personalities, and
searching for the legendary buried treasure of John Dillinger and his
infamous gang of hoodlums. So pour a cup of coffee, find an unoccu-
pied sofa, and head into the Northwoods with
