A heartstrong story of family and romance, tribulation and tenacity, set on the High Plains east of Denver.

In the small town of Holt, Colorado, a high school teacher is confronted with raising his two boys alone after their mother retreats first to the bedroom, then altogether. A teenage girl??her father long since disappeared, her mother unwilling to have her in the house??is pregnant, alone herself, with nowhere to go.

This book has characters that are so real. I swear I have met each one of them. The dialogue was written so well that I could hear the voices jumping off the page. The setting of Colorado was also as alive as the people in the story. I was touched many times by acts of kindness and quiet moments of generosity and love that just took my breath away. Simple, straightforward and full of heart, it’s worth it. ( )

What a smooth and easy read with a great ending. What read like a series vignettes that laced at the edges the story was crisp like Steinbeck but without the hard edges. Life in the 1980's in a high plains ranching town a couple hours from Denver. Simple but certainly not plain lives of people in Holt, CO were well described by not over done. KH limited his words in many scenes. Scattered images noted gave a sense of place and feeling. Almost a 5.0. ( )

Fine, beautifully simple tale that intertwines the destinies of a pregnant high school girl, a pair of bachelor farmers, and a high school teacher struggling with the collapse of his marriage and the task of raising two boys on his own. ( )

Sweet story. I don't like the omission of quotation marks, but this isn't the first book to do that. ( )

Enjoyed reading the book a lot, there was a really nice rhythm in the prose. Most of the characters were almost too likeable though, and the others were too awful. ( )
