Publisher's Summary

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 40, 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, 30 years of miscommunication, and the possibility of misplaced blame.

Craig Lancaster follows his award-winning debut, 600 Hours of Edward, with a powerful novel that invites listeners into a family where conflict and secrets prevail, and where hope for healing and redemption is possible.

    Story
    "A great story in need of a better narrator!"

    This is a great story, told in the voice of a man whose relationship with his father was broken when he was just a boy. He spent his summers with him until suddenly, his father sent him away and the boy never got over it. Until. . . . his own relationship with his wife faltered, his errant father tried to touch base with him and he was forced to uncover decades-old burdens they both bore. The story is very worthwhile. The narration is at times stiff and pedantic which detracts a bit. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
