It also demonstrates how the new generations knowledge of the familys past can ease those tensions. The novel opens with lan, a teenager, finding that he no longer enjoys spending his summer holidays at the family cottage on Mayne Island in BC. He misses the fun of being with his friends in the city. Arguments with his father grow more and more frequent, and lan feels that his dad refuses to see his point of view, always going on about the old days and long-dead relatives.

After one nasty argument, lan takes off in his boat to assert his independence by rowing to the next island. But things go seriously wrong as the current sweeps lan out to the open water of Georgia Strait. When night falls and rain begins to pelt down, lan recognizes that hypothermia is setting in. But even as hope fades, ghosts suddenly begin appearing. Led by Emily, lans great grandmother, a succession of long-dead ancestors and local characters appear on the boat telling him their stories - the stories of pioneer life on the Gulf Islands - bringing understanding of his family and inspiring lan to persevere until dawn brings rescue.
