#78: Wind River by Tom Morrisey

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.

REVIEW:
Incredible story!
I felt almost every emotion on the planet while reading this book. I felt part of the mountains, while Ty and Soren trekked. I felt the power of love in moments with family. I felt a sense of adventure on the trails and at the camps. I was shocked, surprised, and yet, understanding when the big whopper happened. (Gotta read the book to learn what that is.) I was choked up and sad when death rang the doorbell. I can't tell you how beautifully put together this story is, but I can advise you read it yourself. You won't regret it. It's epic!

5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
