Ten Mile Lake
We've got a lot of cleaning up to do.
Maggie should have known it was a fool’s errand to return to Ten Mile Lake; after all, if her father had wanted her to know he was dying, he would have called her himself. It would be easy to just turn around and head back to Portland, especially since he seems to get along better with his new nurse Donny than he ever did with her. But, now that she's home, Maggie can’t seem to leave, and maybe… just maybe she doesn’t really want to.
- Maggie Peterson - F, 30, a sous-chef, HOWARD's only child; she hasn't been home in years.
- Howard Peterson - M, 70, emphysema patient, retired Air Force Colonel. Tough, demanding, irascible.
- Donny Percek - M, 30, caregiver for Howard, and Maggie's old high school friend.
