This book was on my list because I had read another book by the author a year or so ago and liked her storytelling. This book was great. I got through it in two sittings, I just couldn't stop. The synopsis doesn't make it sound like a very intriguing story; a white man finds a Native American man nearly dead in his driveway, meets dying guys sister, questions his own relationship, yadda, yadda, yadda. It's been told before. Not like this though. Greenwood's characters are complex, rich and real. The main character Ben isn't the nicest guy. I wouldn't like him, that's for sure, but his feelings are well described and believable. I'll definitely search out more by this author.
