Monument Road

One of the joys of doing book events is meeting authors. At the St. Paul and Summit School Book Fest in November, I met an author named Charlie Quimby. I got to hear him read from his debut novel, Monument Road, and I knew I would buy and read my own copy. I just finished the book, and I can report that it's wonderful: the story of an aging rancher who found the love of his life against all odds and is now, after her premature death from cancer, struggling to say goodbye. It's also a story about how doing right by people does more good that we even know, and about how acts inspired by presumption and/or revenge do greater damage than we plan. Beautiful writing about memorable characters. Thanks, Charlie.
