BUT FIRST, A WORD FROM OUR BLOGGER
Tom Morrisey's bio tells of a man's man, an adventure and nature lover without limit. But that is not Wind River's author. The man who wrote this novel has a deep, sensitive heart, one that has experienced pain, and healing, love, and the devastation that it can bring.
Morrisey knows humanity, and what it is capable of ... both good and evil. And he brings that three-dimensionality to his novels' characters. When reading one of Morrisey's novels, I quickly forget that I am consuming fiction, and become personally involved in his characters' lives. When they hurt, I hurt. When they forgive ... well ... at times I find it hard to forgive with them.
Anyone who loves beautiful prose, complex characters and the purity of nature, simply must savor Tom Morrisey's work.

ABOUT THE BOOK
You Can't Outrun the Sins of Your Past
Desperate to forget what happened to him in Iraq, Tyler Perkins flees to the emptiness of Wyoming. He's here to escape and also to fulfill a long-ago promise by accompanying his 86-year-old friend Soren Andeman on a fly-fishing trip--once more for old time's sake. But their trek to an idyllic trout lake soon becomes something more deeply harrowing--a journey that uncovers long-held lies, deadly crimes, and the buried secrets of the past. Ty barely has time to contemplate the question of what constitutes justice when nature unleashes her own revenge. Trapped in a race back to safety, he must face his own guilt-ridden past or risk being consumed.
Powerfully imagined by the acclaimed author of In High Places, Wind River is an engaging wilderness adventure that explores the power of confession, the beauty of forgiveness, and the freedom of truth unveiled.
