Dr. Marianne Wells sees the full spectrum of human life pass through the doors
of her Missoula ER: babies taking their first breaths and the elderly taking
their last. Sandwiched in between are the traumas and diagnoses that shatter
lives, and bring tears of joy. Her own life had been a patchwork of heartbreak
and joy: shattered as a child, then put back together by the kindness of family
and strangers, only to be shattered again by a fraternity house sexual assault.
A college football hero, Seamus McElroy, and a childhood girlfriend, Amanda
Anderson, help Marianne rediscover her strength.
As the decades pass, the friends work their way through a variety of difficult
circumstances, and demonstrate that heroes don't have to have super powers and
wear uniforms, capes or masks. They can be quietly caring and kind. As you read
The Diamond Cutter, you may see yourself -- or you may want to see yourself --
in these characters as their stories progress to a refreshing and epic finale.
"The beauty of Big Sky Country is baked into every chapter."
The Diamond Cutter is a romantic drama set in the late 1970s-early '80s,
progressing into the 21st century. The story focuses on the lives and
circumstances of four friends growing up in western Montana and how their
friendships and lives evolve in vastly diverse ways as they approach adulthood.
Most of the story takes place in and around the Montana cities of Missoula
and Butte, in Seattle, and in Chile. The Montana backdrop offers spectacular
sceneries and perspectives that are innately linked to the state's colorful past.
