Minneapolis environmental atttorneys Nick Ward and Lena Grant are no longer partners in law and marriage. But neither Lena’s heart nor Nick’s imagination can seem to accept that fact. As Nick pursues ever-wilder animal rescue schemes, Lena continues to rescue him. But who will rescue her?

The Island of Always continues the quixotic romance begun a decade ago in The Marriage of True Minds (Unbridled Books).

Praise for the Marriage of True Minds:

“Stephen Evans’ first novel, The Marriage of True Minds, is a funny, poignant, oddly beautiful book about three divergent life forms—animals, people, and lawyers. You will love it if you read it with a true mind.”—Kinky Friedman

"Evans demonstrates his playwright’s mastery of dialogue and tension in his accomplished and whimsical first novel about love and the bizarre behavior it ignites." —Publishers Weekly

"Evans writes throughout with a sense of refreshing humor, and the snappy repartee between the two leads is also very funny and fun." ForeWord

"Poignant and outrageous, moving and profound, Evans' delectable debut novel thrums with zesty dialogue and a memorably zany cast of irresistible characters." Booklist
