“I look forward to reading further books from this author. 
“Good story by a good storyteller. 
“This has all the aspects you would expect in a classical western, and a whole lot more. As well as a story of the west, it’s a story about trying to find yourself. It’s also a story of redemption, like the blurb reads. This story is definitely worth a read. “
