Overview

As caretaker of Boot Hill, Gospel Cummings had a personal interest in those who died with their boots on, and of late they had been so numerous as to keep the sky pilot busy saying prayers for their souls. Some of the trouble was caused by Cord Demingway, ramrod of an outlaw gang: some of it was the fault of Pug Jones, who had his own owl-hoot followers. Some of the shootings were from honest cowboys such as Charley Compton, who had the choice between being the target of bonanza hunters, or drawing first.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Veteran tearjerker Milne (The Paper Bag Christmas) packs this contemporary romance brim-full of melodrama. Classical guitarist Ethan meets artist Anna in Vienna, where both are poor graduate students. "I didn't know a lot about art," Ethan declares, "but I dare say that she was a Da Vinci compared to the rest of the Etch-a-sketch women I'd ever known." Reuniting in the States, they marry and fund their growing family through corporate work that takes them far from the arts. Their relationship slowly crumbles under the stress of more obstacles than could realistically fit into one lifetime. Bad luck proves to be a family trait when Ethan's grandfather reveals the history of his guitar, Karl, to teach Ethan about the power of forgiveness. Despite the acute overuse of metaphor, trite advice, cheesy song lyrics, and surplus angst, Ethan and Anna's tale is oddly compelling. (May)
