Overview

Mikey Young is killed in his backyard by a hunter who is acquitted of all charges. While the years roll by, grief paralyzes one family and motivates the other. When Mikey's sister falls for the hunter's son, the only place serving up peace is Mourning Dove.

Publishers Weekly --"It's remarkably well handled - the story of young love, the depth of a parent's grief and depression, and the terrible guilt of having killed a child, all of which comes to a head when the families realize what's going on with Gracie and Evan. The story is well-written, the characters are clearly defined, and the targeted audience will be engaged from page one. It will provide conversation and introspection and, if the reader is a parent, the need to give your child a hug."
