Nana Noonan and Maggie Mulvaney are back together, closer than ever. They even end up sharing Maggie's bedroom. Not by choice. By recommendation of Judge Adams of the Provincial Court of British Columbia, with a blessing from newly-commissioned Staff Sergeant Reems of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Detachment in Terrace. Nana pokes her nose into a lot of business that isn't hers to poke. Draft dodgers, hippies, unhappy wives, an abusive husband and an unprecedented snowfall in November 1965 make for a long hot winter in the Pacific Northwest.
