"What a story! I read it straight through with a short break for dinner. I couldn't put Jake out of my mind."


- Sandra Fluck,


"A full-flavored contemporary Western novel ... an intriguingly different story that employs the usual backdrops of the West, but with a satisfyingly original eye."


- D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review


"A novel about one man's struggle to come to terms with the past and find the courage to move into the future...A moving and inspiring story."


- Susan Breen, author of The Fiction Class

Jake’s seemingly idyllic life is in fact a fragile refuge from the pain and guilt of a tragic loss. His serenity is shattered when a Hollywood movie crew suddenly descends on the sprawling Nevada ranch where he tends vast herds and young cowhands. But the chaotic clash of cultures also sparks an unlikely friendship with Hollywood mega-star Robert Lange. Their growing connection triggers a startling offer from Lange and reawakens a dream Jake had buried with his past. But how much will he risk to embrace life again? This gently powerful novel is filled with characters who face sweeping disasters, both natural and man-made, and make choices that surprise even themselves. Jake’s journey is filled with unforgettable people and the places that shape them, and sheds light on a timeless question: What makes a good man tick?
