This is one of the most contrived and tedious works our book group has ever selected. The author, rather than moving the story along, fills the pages with irrelevant descriptions of everything. It's as though the author spent months writing descriptions of the environment, several weeks of writing vignettes, tried a couple of short stories, and then threw it all in together. A waste of time.

Lyrical writing, complex family relationships and a moral crisis make this story of the American West a modern classic. A father, wife and 2 young boys make their own journeys across the same landscape, meeting many memorable characters along the way. And it turns out that some of those characters were actual people who figured in the very real historical events. One of the best of 2014!

Richly descriptive, loved the characters, very well done historical fiction.

Set against the backdrop of the American West, this book is about one man's all-consuming quest for redemption and how it affects his wife and two sons. The writing is lovely - a good read.

A worthy read.
