"Set in a logging town on the lawless Pacific coast of Washington State at the turn of the twentieth century, this ... novel tells the story of the Ellstrom family and the violent social and historical forces that tear them apart"-- Provided by publisher.
In a logging town on the lawless Pacific coast of Washington State at the turn of the twentieth century, Jacob Ellstrom is armed with his medical kit and accompanied by his wife, Nell. But Jacob is not a doctor, and a botched delivery exposes his ruse, driving him onto the streets in a plunge towards alcoholism. Alone, Nell scrambles to keep herself and their young son, Duncan, safe in this dangerous world, but years later a string of calamitous events will send them hurtling towards each other in an epic collision that will shake the town to its core.

Did not complete. It was as if the author was given so many words and he just threw them into the book randomly. Very difficult read.
