Foreword Reviews Starred ReviewThe world is a complicated place with lots of small moving parts. When someone moves one part just a little, it causes all the other parts to move in ways we can’t see coming.Two men. One young, one old. Complete strangers who have made the same ultimate decisionthat their lives are not worth living and it is time to take fate into their own hands. When their stories intersect on a single fateful night in West Texas, the ensuing friendship takes them down a perilous road neither imagined possible. As they contend with the police, horse thieves, and murderers, the two men forge an unbreakable bond, and together they discover that they each might have something to live for after all. Full of cowboy common sense that spans generations, SMALL MOVING PARTS explores the simplicities and complexities of love in its many forms and how a rare and remarkable friendship can change everything.Nothing much grew in Bufort, Texas, but a few things did.
