    Loved it!

    After reading Driftless by David Rhodes, I decided I wanted to read more from him. This book tells the story of July Montgomery, who was one of the interesting and important characters in Driftless. It was interesting to read about the difficult life that made July into the respected and quietly reserved man that he became. There were some parts of the story that were so sad I cried and some that were so happy I laughed. It was a great read!

    Prequel to Driftless

    This is a sad but interesting story about the boyhood of one of the pivotal characters in Driftless.
