    From the best selling and critically acclaimed author of Trans-Sister Radio comes a hauntingly beautiful story of the ties that bind families - and the strains that pull them apart. "Bohjalian writes honestly and often movingly," says Publishers Weekly, and Library Journal calls it "tender...[written] with poetic skill."

    Overall

    After reading Bohjalian's Trans-sister Radio, I approached Buffalo Soldier with high expectations. While vastly different in subject matter, this book shares the lyricism, and freshness that creates memorable characters and situations out of everyday life.

    We follow Laura and Terry through the loss of their twin daughters, as they move through their grief; fighting to stay together when they are too damaged to continuing loving. And at times, it seems so much easier to cut their losses, and move on.

    Particularly touching, is Bohjalian's unromantic depiction of Alfred, a young foster child struggling to create a family of his own, and to win a place in the hearts of two broken, flawed adults.

    Written with a sure hand, you will weep, rage, and rant with, (and sometimes, at) the characters. The journey is strong, but the resolution seems strangely too easy- wrongs too easily forgiven, and forgot, though perhaps with all the preceeding turmoil, the characters have earned a break.

    The story is well narrated, bringing small-town Vermont and its inhabitants to poignant life.
