The year before she was born, Stephanie Hubbard's father - a Madison Avenue magazine writer - bought Bluff Island, an uninhabited forty acre island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River. Stephanie grew up on this island, a true believer in her father's idealized version of splendid isolation. But what began as a family adventure became a daughter's lifelong struggle to live a life worthy of her father, and ultimately to create a life worthy of herself. With a cinematic eye, Stephanie Hubbard recalls the memorable scenes that make up her life story - from the birth of her younger brother trough the birth of her son a few years ago - and the result is something transformative.
