Publisher's Summary

The story of a lifelong friendship between two men - and their love for the woman who eludes them. A glorious fiction debut by an award-winning writer.

McEban looks at the woman sleeping beside him. Her name is Gretchen. She's married to Bennett, and Bennett is McEban's best friend. But McEban has loved Gretchen forever - since they were children growing up on adjacent ranches in Wyoming.

What neither man knows is that Gretchen will soon leave her husband in pursuit of a new life. When both decide to follow her on an odyssey across the American West, their journey forces truths and reveals the mystical, sometimes fatal bonds of loyalty and love.

Critic Reviews

"Both the emotional depth and the linguistic play of Spragg's novel are surprisingly fresh and satisfying." (Rocky Mountain News)

Have read all by this new and wonderful writer

I did't wait for the books on cD version..I confess. However, I can't imagine a more suitable medium for this writer's efforts. He is simply a wordmaster and the setting for his books would, perhaps, lead one to believe the opposite to be true. Word pictures=perfection.
