About the Book

Forty-five-year-old Gus Henderson has climbed to the top of the ladder in the corporate world, makes good money, and is considered successful according to the outside world. But there is just one problem: Gus is not happy. While searching for something that will leave him less lonely and more fulfilled, Gus stumbles across a newspaper ad for a remote shack for rent in the hills. Gus has just found his answer.

A short time later, Gus leaves everything he knows and settles into the dilapidated shack where he soon becomes one with nature on his quest to find purpose in his life. Comforted by the sounds emitted from the hills surrounding his new home, Gus befriends the resident creatures, derives inspiration from Walden by Thoreau, and wonders if the seclusion will help him see his life more clearly. While learning to live in the present, Gus embarks on a journey of self-discovery where not only his life changes, but also the lives of those around him as he faces tragedy, embraces unexpected discoveries, and uncovers a powerful message.

Seclusion is the poignant tale of one man’s quest to break free from a life he is not meant to live and find peace, purpose, and happiness.
