He owed a lot of people, but I was the only one left to collect. I told myself that I didn’t care about him, only about what he owed me, whatever that was.

I even tried to believe it.

When Mitch Quillen’s life begins to unravel, he fears there is no escape. His marriage and his career are both failing, and his relationship with his father has been a disaster for decades. Approaching forty, Mitch doesn’t want to become a middle-aged statistic. When his estranged father, Jim, suddenly calls, Mitch’s wife urges him to respond. Ready for a change, Mitch heads to Montana and a showdown that will alter the course of his life.

Amid a backdrop of rugged peaks and valleys, the story unfolds: a violent episode that triggered the rift, thirty years of miscommunication, and the possibility of misplaced blame. In this powerful novel, readers are invited into a family where conflict and secrets prevail and where hope for healing and redemption is possible.

    " This novel snuck up on me. At first it seemed like a basic enough novel. Nothing amazing in the writing department, but perfectly sufficient enough. The plot had a mystery which keeps you reading. But, the more I got into it the more I came across some beautifully written phrases and perfectly captured feelings. This along with a well developed plot and story made this book a nice surprise. "

    " I liked the dialogue, the story and the emotional mystery. I also enjoyed how he took us back and forth from childhood to the main character's present. "

    " I had a difficult relationship with my (now deceased) father, so this book struck a chord with me. I wanted to rescue Mitch so many times throughout the book, but I'm glad he got an ending that made him understand, even though it wasn't an ending that made me happy. "

    " This was a very well written book, with well developed characters. I don't always like books that go back and forth in time, but the technique definitely worked for this plot. I thought I had a lot of the book figured out, but the ending did surprise me. "
