If you value an interesting story a beautiful and unusual writing style and descriptions that make you pause to completely absorb their depth this novel is for you They say a good book is timeless and this one fits the bill even though it was written back in the sixties Some may dismiss it as a cowboy story but it is so much The story follows two brothers who have carved out a partnership running a ranch each contributing according to their particular interests and gifts their lives set by predictable routines their interactions etched into accepted patterns even if not fully enjoyed by the other There is a status uo that each has accepted despite being polar opposites on most measured dimensions and they live as though that status uo will last forever Enter a wife with a teenage son and watch the apples roll from the toppled cart Gone is the order from their world as adjustments are made to this new consideration and these presences The remainder of the novel provides glimpses into the inner thoughts feelings and responses of each as they try to co exist in a world where little is said out loudIt is the lack of actual dialogue and the nature of what does get said that is so striking about this novel We are in the heads of the characters or being given background through narration which is very different from books of today where action and dialogue fill most of the pages It s as though the characters are talking to us in their heads which creates a very different experiencebut one that I enjoyed immensely It created a world representing all the things that don t get done and said but are there lurking in the background Some will say there was too much telling and not enough showing but this was a masterful tell We feel Phil s callousness George s empathy and patience Rose s anxiety and Peter s aloofness as they stealthily move towards the ultimate intersection that changes everything I ve never seen a gradual reveal done uite so splendidly It produces the simultaneous reactions of shock and of course You have hints you think you maybe know where it s going but still the arrival makes you catch your breathAnd the languagestunning at times George never blamed anybody a virtue so remote and inhuman it probably accounted for the discomfort people felt in his presence his silence they took for disapproval and it allowed them no chink to get at him and uarrel with him His silence left people guilty and they had no chance to dilute their guilt with angerShe felt suffocated in the void between her intention and her ability and shattered by lonelinessPhil pondered how one man passes a gift on to another how like the very chains and lengths of rawhide rope a man makes human character is woven on a strand of this and a strand of that sometimes beautifully and sometimes poorly But Phil knewwhat it was to be a pariah and he had loathed the world should it loath him firstI especially enjoyed how the complex Phil character was portrayed and revealed over the course of the story Great read Thank you to those of you who had reviewed it letting us know it was out there
