This book was billed as a Western by Goodreads, but I would describe it as literature and art before I would use that term. In short, I was blown away by Black River. Hulse uses a former correctional officer to address the issues of self-imprisonment, forgiveness and redemption, within a gorgeous literary style and a stunning Montana backdrop.
It was a page turner, but even more, it was an eloquent and rewarding work of fiction that will haunt you long after you’ve read the last page.
