Eli Singer, a rancher and poet in remote Eastern Montana, sees his life upended when a long-buried corpse - which turns out to be a murder victim from Eli's childhood - erodes out of a hillside on his property. This discovery forces Eli to turn inward to revisit the tragic events in his past that led to a life-changing moment of violence, while at the same time he must reach outside himself toward Chloe, a literary agent from New York whom he is falling in love with. In the tradition of such classic Western writers as Thomas McGuane, James Lee Burke, Ivan Doig, and Jim Harrison, A Bloom of Bones is a poignant and moving exploration of family, community, and the echoing ramifications of violence across generations as well as a genre-subverting literary mystery.

If you like cheap romance you may like this. Author uses a lot of poetic language and metaphors but none of it reveals any truth behind these characters. Nothing like Ivan Doig.
