"At forty-six, Miles MacPherson returns to a cottage he built on the slopes of his native Cape Breton Island. He has travelled around the world a half dozen times and has grown weary of cars, planes, and people. He wants to read. Visitors, however, climb to his door to talk of their ailments. They leave refreshed, thank him, though he has said no word. Visits end when he needs help. He has lost his gold glasses on the mountain." - from rear cover
