The lighthouse stands on the edge of Lake Michigan, sentry against the Great Lakes gales. Intertwined inextricably with personal mythology, it casts a mysterious spell over one young man, prompting his older brother to travel across the country to intervene and embark on an investigation of the past and present, of the divergent paths their lives have taken – and of the mysteries of the Lighthouse itself. This is a story in which the melancholy quiet of small-town America is tinged with the faintest touches of understated mystery.
