Making peace with the world, sooner or later most of us have to. But how? Ian Mac Bride's way begins in 1909 when he watches a fly-casting tournament and dreams of becoming a great fly caster. But soon Ian experiences personal tragedy, and then is appalled by the slaughter of World War I. Torn by grief, Ian loses faith in the world - until, almost by accident, he finds a way to come to terms.
