Sometimes one letter can change a life. In the case of recent college graduate Tristan Campbell, it was a formal note from a London solicitor who informed him that he might be the heir to an affluent mountain-climber's fortune, the operative words of course being "might be." To prove his claim, the young American travels widely, searching for evidence, but also piecing together the romantic life of this man who died before he was born. As the thread goes deeper, he finds him entangled in a new history of his own. Part adventure story; part World War I epic; part love story: The Steady Running of the Hour shows how parallel lines sometimes cross.
