A man attempts to run away from life--and learns that he can't. While Craig Miller does abandon his life, he is more accurately abandoning the people he loves, and who, unfortunately for him, fail to love him in return as he would hope they would. The surprise ending demands a great deal of reflection and self-inspection by the people who populate the story. Hopefully, the same demand will be made of the reader. 298 pages "From the very start, the conflict is palpable, and the ending is not apparent until the closing pages. Sometimes I felt like the main character was sitting right across the table from me, pouring out his heart; other times I wanted to strangle him." -J.D. RULE, author of A Bridge to Someday, Delsey, Johnson Canyon, and Neap Tide.
