Improbable Solution

Overview

Welcome to Whiterock, Oregon, where peculiar happenings are taken for granted. Where Sally Carruthers nurses her dying father. Where Gus Loring seeks forgetfulness. To find it, he'd have to do the impossible and forgive himself.

Whiterock is a town where people are from, because there's nothing to hold them there. Every year more of the stores on Main Street close, and every year more of its young people leave to find their fortunes somewhere else; yet somehow it endures. So ...

Overview

Welcome to Whiterock, Oregon, where peculiar happenings are taken for granted. Where Sally Carruthers nurses her dying father. Where Gus Loring seeks forgetfulness. To find it, he'd have to do the impossible and forgive himself.

Whiterock is a town where people are from, because there's nothing to hold them there. Every year more of the stores on Main Street close, and every year more of its young people leave to find their fortunes somewhere else; yet somehow it endures. So perhaps there's something more to Whiterock than dusty streets, shabby buildings, and discouraged residents, something as hungry for love as Gus and Sally.

Read an Excerpt

Gus stared at her, standing slightly breathless and flushed. How had he ever thought her plain?

He stared at her a long time, trying to understand where she was coming from. Finally he said, "Didn't you hear what I told you? I killed my wife."

"Yes, well, I'm sure you had a very good reason to," she said primly. And smiled.

"Lady, you are crazier than a loon," he said, feeling an almost irresistible urge to smile back at her.

"That's why I'm here," she agreed. "Now, are you going to answer me?"

Gus had no choice. One way or another, he had to get this woman out of his system. Until he did, he would have no peace. He couldn't even run again as long as she held him here.

    The plot is original, interesting and entertaining.

    Whiterock, Oregon reminds me of the small town in Kentucky where I live. There is very little to encourage people to stay. There are few businesses; they just cannot survive. Yet the town does survive. Everyone knows everyone else and the people are friendly. Despite big dreams Sally stays in Whiterock to care for her aging and ailing father. She continues to dream despite her circumstances. Gus is a former executive. A family tragedy leaves him feeling guilty. When he meets Sally there is an instant attraction. It is as though they are meant to be together.
    As their passion and affections grow so does the town. It is as though the town is thriving on the love that is blossoming between Sally and Gus. I like this story. The plot is original, interesting and entertaining. There are twists and turns. I will be watching for more books by Judith B Glad.
