As Julia Harrison’s first summer living in Ontario approached,
she became aware of the culture of the cottage. While friends and
family talked of nothing but languid afternoons on the dock and
bartered for as many lakeside days as possible, Harrison marveled at
the less attractive components of cottage life: the clogged highways en
route and the unrelenting investment of money and labour that the
idyllic escapes demanded.
Curious about the rich and passionate meaning these places seemed to
hold, Harrison studied cottagers in the Haliburton region over the
course of seven years. Thoughtfully and engagingly written, A
Timeless Place considers the cottage family as a place where
memories are treasured, national identity is celebrated, spiritual
balance is restored, and even a few dark secrets are kept.
