“Coplin’s consistent and finely-tuned rendering of a very different sensibility may help readers to comprehend a time when expedience did not rule . . . This patience is revealed in a narrative that is at once lyrical and unsentimental. This is the most extraordinary fruit of a noteworthy debut novel.” —Bellingham Herald

Buy it from an indie in the country of its Central Washington setting, Riverwalk Books in Lake Chelan or A Book For All Seasons in Leavenworth.
