Though Gretchen is married to his best friend, McEban has been in love with her since they were children growing up on adjacent ranches in Wyoming. When she leaves her husband for a new life, the two men follow her in an odyssey across the American West that forces truths and reveals the mystical, sometimes fatal bonds of love and loyalty. Muscular, vivid, wise, painful, funny, and true; Mark Spragg’s novel is entirely unforgettable.

    " I really enjoyed this book. I like Mark Spragg's style of writing. Think Cormac McCarthy or Kent Haruf. He uses very spare and direct language. The story weaves back and forth between the main character's childhood and current day. Set on a Wyoming cattle ranch, life is often tough for McEban. All kinds of characters enter into the story including Bennett, McEban's best friend, as well as Bennett's wife, Gretchen. A love triangle is set up from the get-go and things get rough. The author has keen observations about the strength of friendship and dealing with the cards you're dealt. "
