Audie Award Nominee, Literary Fiction, 2013

New York Times best-selling author Stephen Harrigan lit up the publishing world with his Spur Award-winning The Gates of the Alamo. The remarkable follow-up to that acclaimed hit, Remember Ben Clayton further cements Harrigan's place as a premier voice in American fiction.

Exiled to Texas with his grown daughter, sculptor Francis Gil Gilheaney is commissioned to create a statue for a man who recently lost his son in World War I. But as work on the statue progresses, secrets slowly reveal themselves and Gil's fragile family threads begin to fray.

    " I chose this as my book club selection and our city chose it for our community read. Great book, great Texas writer with a sweeping story of loss, and attempts to find peace. Recommend it highly "

    " Since I have been going through some grief presently, I very much related to the depth of feeling in the characters. each had his/her own mourning to work through and secrets from the past to face. one charcater compared her own secrets to her father's and found that "her secrets were not gravely held, but simply her own business" (p. 320). another character comissions a statue of his son who died in The War knowing that the statue won't bring his son back, but wanting it anyway. That statue, standing alone in on a Texas plateau, is a beautiful meditation on memory and legacy. "
