“Houston's Cowboys Are My Weakness was the book that sent all of us gals out West, and kept us here. In her new novel - a thinly disguised narrative featuring a central character named Pam -- Houston showcases her wiser, more mature voice as she drops the reader into locales as far-flung as Alaska, Bhutan, Northern California, and Durango, Colorado. The prose is read-aloud gorgeous. Each mini-chapter reads almost like a Zen koan, inviting us to ponder its significance in this beautiful testament to the way good friends and the incomparable perspective of travel can help us find home and family.”
— Libby Cowels, Maria's Bookshop, Durango, CO
