About this title


"So you got stuck on this island, eh?" says the Beachcomber, a short man with straw-like hair and piercing eyes. Taken aback, the young American couple from Southern California wonders what he means. They are the new owners of a split-level house overlooking a picturesque, long harbor in the Canadian Gulf Islands. The wife believes the island to be an Eden and convinces her reluctant husband to buy what she calls "their dream house."

When they soon realize that they can't afford the increasing property taxes, maintenance costs plus mortgage payments; they decide to rent the house to cover expenses. Fire, frustration, legal entanglements, tenants bordering on derangement and the couple's discord lurks over the house like a serpent in the grass.

The constant help of islanders, the wildlife and the pristine beauty keep the couple returning. Instead of their being stuck on an island, the island has stuck on them.
