It's a solid historical novel that includes lots of local color and historical references, but I particularly enjoyed the fleshed-out characters. It kept me engaged all the way to the end.
The second half of the novel begins eight years later, when Matt is a sergeant in Troop K of the Ninth Calvary Regiment. Struggling over whether he should marry his girlfriend, Jeanie, he reconnects with Comes Running and learns that she is leaving an abusive relationship with a member of her tribe to carve out a new life as an entertainer with Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show. Matt dodges the decision about marriage when he is sent to Cuba during the Spanish-American war and meets up with Carlos Estrada-Palma, a young Cuban photojournalist from New York, who is covering the war for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World. There the two men meet Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders, along with novelist Stephen Crane. During that time, Matt corresponds with Jeanie and Comes Running, and struggles with his mixed feelings for both women before returning home to America.
The author weaves fascinating historical details into the stories of the three young characters, whose paths cross over multiple miles and major historical milestones in our country's history.Read more ›
This is professional novel standard though it seems to be the author's first book. A great read.
