Tired of their high school teaching jobs and discouraged by their
failed attempts at conceiving a child, Mark and Fran Finley decide
they need a change in their lives. Abruptly, they leave their
friends and family in suburban New Jersey to begin anew as
innkeepers on a secluded lake in the Adirondack Mountains. There
they muddle through their first season at the inn, serving barely
edible dinners to guests, stranding themselves in chest-deep
snowdrifts, and somehow, miraculously, amid swarms of ravenous
black flies, conceiving a child, a girl they name Nat. Years later,
when Mark and Fran are nearing middle age and Nat is a troubled
teenager, Mark's life is ripped apart, forever changed, and he must
choose between returning to his old home in New Jersey or trying to
rebuild what is left of his life and family in the place of his
greatest joy anddeepest sorrow. The Tumble Inn is a moving drama
about home and about the fragility and resilience of love.
