I am not sure what inspired me to start reading this novel of love and loss set in Spokane, Washington, but I am glad I spent some time with it.
Mr. Kolbet has a nice writing style, and this story is really a character study of one man, Edwin Klein. We follow his current struggles, and learn of his past losses, while cheering him on. The introduction of an evil developer adds some interesting suspense, and the story just continue to roll faster.
This is not a simple romance, nor a predictable inspirational tale, but something beyond that: The story takes unexpected twists and turns, and finally winds up in a place quite different than I expected. I sort of like that in a novel.
