NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED Future Search is among the best-established and most effective methods for enabling people to make and implement ambitious plans. It has been used to redesign IKEA’s product pipeline in Sweden, develop an integrated economic development plan in Northern Ireland, and demobilize child soldiers in Southern Sudan.…
Elsa's questionable health, the slippery conditions on the trails, and testimony by hiking companions from whom Elsa separated, lead authorities to conclude that her death was accidental. Kris's gut feelings tell her otherwise; yet her first duty must be to return to Bergen, Elsa's hometown, and comfort Elsa's elderly father. When he, too, for reasons far different from her own, asserts that Elsa's death was not accidental, Kris begins a personal search for the truth.
Elsa's close connections with the editor of the newspaper for which she worked, her opinionated columns, her private ghosts from the Nazi occupation of Norway in her youth and her post-war years in England, lead Kris on a rocky trail of discovery, danger, and romance, and into the throes of a clandestine plot and soul-searching questions about justice.
