Black River is a beautifully wrought debut novel with strong echoes of two of my favorite authors, Kent Haruf and Larry McMurtry. Set in Montana it is the story of of Wes Carver, a former corrections officer who has returned to his home town of Black River with his wife's ashes and the news that the man who horribly maimed him is up for parole. the novel moves easily back and forth in time and explores the themes of forgiveness and redemption in restrained, controlled prose. This is a must-read.
