Publisher's Summary

The celebrated author of Montana 1948 returns to the American West in this riveting tale of familial love and its unexpected consequences.

Dalton, North Dakota. It’s September 1951: years since George and Margaret Blackledge lost their son James when he was thrown from a horse; months since his widow Lorna took off with their only grandson and married Donnie Weboy. Margaret is steadfast, resolved to find and retrieve her grandson Jimmy - the one person in this world keeping James’s memory alive - while George, a retired sheriff, is none too eager to stir up trouble. Unable to sway his wife from her mission, George takes to the road with Margaret by his side, traveling through the Dakota badlands to Gladstone, Montana. When Margaret tries to convince Lorna to return home to North Dakota and bring little Jimmy with her, the Blackledges find themselves entangled with the entire Weboy clan, who are determined not to give up the boy without a fight. From the author who brought us Montana 1948, Let Him Go is pitch-perfect, gutsy, and unwavering. Larry Watson is at his storytelling finest in this unforgettable return to the American West.

Very captivating

Great book; however, not a feel good read. It is a bit melancholy. It is a book both men and women should enjoy.

Made no sense

I bought this because the movie is about to come out and I was so excited. So glad I did before I watched the movie. I feel there was not much of a story line. It was just not a good book...don't even know how to explain it. LOL

Final call

really intense, sad for Jimmy, family violence that truly happens, grandfather's decision to take matters into his own hands given his background definitely high point before the fire

Loved this book

If you are looking for a book that you don’t want to end this is it. The Hubby and I normally when traveling will listen to a book. This book we listened to both at home and while traveling. The first ever. I always miss the Characters when I finish a book. Enjoy

Beautifully written

Compelling story from one native North Dakotan to another. The writing is lovely. The descriptions brought me back to my roots. Interested to see how the movie carries out your story. Thank you.
