The Way Station is a traditional sort of Western about an aging gunfighter and his wife who try to leave that life by taking a job running an isolated desert stage line way station. Of course wanting to leave the past behind and actually doing it are two different things. Near the end, the wife says, "There's violence in towns, in the city, on the empty land. It's a shame and a pity, but you can't hide from it wherever you are." And that is pretty much the point of the book.
The novel is well written with interesting, if sometimes predictable, characters. The only real problem I had with it was inaccurate firearms information. I have said it before, if you don't know weapons, avoid trying to write specifics. Stick with general statements. Rather than writing she drew her Remington Russian revolver, just say that she pulled a revolver.
