Jean Gilkyson, pregnant when her husband was killed,
is raising their daughter, Griff, in an Iowa trailer house with yet another
brutal boyfriend when she realizes this can’t go on. But the only refuge
available is a town in Wyoming where her loved ones are dead and her
father-in-law wishes she was, too.
For a decade he has blamed her for his son’s death,
choosing to go on living largely because his oldest friend couldn’t survive otherwise.
Bound as close as brothers, they face old age on a faltering ranch, their
interdependence even more acute after one was crippled and the other mauled by
his own pain.
Suddenly Griff meets this grandfather she’d never
heard about, not to mention a black cowboy confined to the bunkhouse, and
irrepressibly claims her new life in hopes of turning grievous loss and
recrimination toward reconciliation and love. Download and start listening now!
