This is a very simple, straightforward story set in a small town in Nevada in the 1890’s. at times, the writing is reminiscent of Willa Cather and My Antonia. The narration was clear, strong and true remaining consistent throughout the novel.
Prejudice and homophobia play big parts in this drama although friendship, love and trust themes also significantly factor. It was enjoyable and the plot twists and turns as it winds its way to the end; it wasn’t very predictable and I enjoyed that.
I won this novel through a Good Reads Giveaway.
