Stunning photography and the touching story of a monument of love built on Heart Island.
Boldt Castle in the Thousand Islands Region of the St. Lawrence River stands as a remembrance of the magnificence of a bygone era. In 1900, George C. Boldt set out to build the castle for his wife, Louise. But four years after the project began, Louise died suddenly. Boldt halted construction and the castle was never completed. The existing structure fell into disrepair, until the 1970s, when restoration was undertaken by the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority. Today, many boat tours take visitors to the island. In this beautiful photographic book, the author tells the story behind the crumbling castle he first encountered as a child, and its restoration.
