Anna Silowski, highly educated, driven and successful, works as a curator in a prestigious palaeontological museum; Scott Macleod dropped out of school, has a confused relationship with his Native roots, and an alcoholic father in tow. After a day's prospecting leads Anna to make an extraordinary discovery in a remote part of British Columbia, the tensions below the surface of her successful career are exposed. Anna has carried for years terrifying knowledge that she feels she must keep secret, and now is pushed toward breakdown. She finds herself unexpectedly dependent on Scott, and recruits him to help on the excavation of her find. Scott is soon way out of his depth, and the excavation itself teeters on the edge of disaster...THE FIND is a compelling story about discovery, inheritance and fate, and a moving exploration of the possibilities that hide within a seemingly impossible relationship.

a wonderful book. Beautifully written. Great story and characterisation. Highly recommended. The best book I've read this year, and even better that it's Canadian.

I did learn a lot from this book - the horror of Huntington's disease and some paleontology. It was well plotted and the characterization was good for the main two characters at least. Well worth the read.

Would recommend to others - blends paleontology, First Nations, love interest and genetic disease. Set in British Columbia.
