Let Him Go by Larry Watson

Let Him Go
by Larry Watson

Having lost her son, Margaret Blackledge refuses to lose her grandson as well. Her daughter-in-law, Lorna, has left and married another man. Margaret is determined to find her grandson and her husband, George, will not let her go on this journey alone. Unfortunately, Lorna has married into a violent family that will not give up the boy without a fight. Set in 1950's North Dakota and Montana, the book's language is as sparse as the landscape. -- recommended by Tammy T. - Circulation Management Department
