On of the best books I have read this year. Characterization wonderful. Gripping plot.

Reminded me of the literary style of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Watson's central narrator is, supposedly, a teacher (age 52ish) who is looking back at life in Montana in 1948 when he was age 12. I loved the book: could not set it down! Well written story!

Worthy of the acclaim and national book awards it has received. Couldn't put it down!

When we first meet David Hayden he is a grown man, but the person we come to know is a much younger David. Looking for truth and considering the world to be black and white, young David is shocked at finding the skeletons of abuse and racism that are a part of his family. His father, the local sheriff, must make some hard decisions regarding family loyalty and justice. In the end, the harsh light of reality reveals a secret strength that David never knew he or his family had. This award winning novel tells a story in a manner that matches the landscape of Montana; full of small gullies and everything is not as exposed as you might think.
