This is a slow-burn of a story with the brothers’ relationship at the heart of the tale. We know Phil has a mean heart from the get-go and what happens to him at the end is both expected and shocking. There’s actually not a lot of plot here, just a lot of daily life with details about ranch life in the early decades of the century. What the story does have, and has in spades, is character.

Kat Sounds interesting! I like stories that revolve around sibling relationships, so I'm planning to check this out.
