Montanan Deirdre McNamer has beautifully captured a moment in time from the late 1920s when a young boy could ride his horse forever over unfenced prairie. Her descriptions of the beauty of the land and the fierceness of a winter storm on a Montana mountain pass are as true today as then. McNamer's descriptions of a B-29 bomber pilot's missions in 1945 take the reader directly into the heart of the experience. As these narratives are woven throughout the novel, the story told is of the bonds of family and of friendship and the struggle to come to terms with the death of one of two brothers. Although the story is fiction the author has stated that the idea began as nonfiction regarding the death of her uncle directly after World War II.
