Young Tommy hasn't been to the town of Low for two years - not since his mother's death. And it's been two years since he's seen little Baby Bridget, the girl with the trillium-shaped eyes. But now Tommy, his father, and his father's friend Frank are driving in a shiny new Buick up the through the Gatineau Hills to reach the small Quebecois town - a place steeped in the culture of its Irish settlers. A host of colorful characters await him in Low - Crazy Mickey, Tommy's 100-old Irish great-grandfather; Grandma Minnie, Mickey's 99-year-old wife; and dear Aunt Dottie, who carries a huge bottle of Lysol for washing raspberries and socks. Then there's Mean Hughie, Baby Bridget's abusive father who is ill with cancer. For Tommy, it's a summer when love and death are all mixed up - and healing comes in unexpected ways.
