A cracking good adventure tale, full of winking outlaws and relentless villains. In 1915, an aging bank robber is trying to right his past by making amends to the woman he left behind forty years earlier, and a struggling novelist joins him in his quest.

Set in the West in 1915 and involving a journey, Enger takes a writer with writer’s block, Monte Becket, and Glendon Hale, a man with a sketchy past on a journey to find the love of Glendon’s life, a woman known as Blue. It reads like a potboiler in a way, but is so full of characters you’ll love getting to know and lots of writerly references that will make any fan of fiction smile. If you’ve cowboys or cowgirls in your past, you’ll love this tale. If you think taking a trip may help you find yourself, you may be right. I just felt disconcerted that the book’s title didn’t relate to a principal character.

This is an admirable follow-up to the Minnesota author's million-seller "Peace Like A River." An enjoyable road trip tale through the American West in 1915, the writing is rich and the characters are intriguing and meaningful.
