Summary
"What if a balm for your greatest pain appeared in a lost corridor on the far side of a remote lake? Would you search for it? Or dismiss it as nonsense? Jake Palmer's annual lake-house vacation with longtime friends was supposed to be relaxing--it was supposed to take his mind off his recent divorce. But when he meets an elderly man early one morning on the lake, his world tips on its side. The old man claims there's a forgotten corridor at the far end of the lake that few ever discover. But for those who do, and follow to where it leads, they'll find answers to their deepest questions of loss. At first, the search just seems like a distraction. But does he really want to find it? The Long Journey to Jake Palmer explores profound loss and how to take hold of real hope when there seems to be none"--
