The author, some years ago, of a well-received series of mysteries, Jamie Harrison is back over the mountains from her Montana home at last, with a powerful, much-anticipated new novel, The Widow Nash (Counterpoint). This one has been worth the wait.
“Harrison paints a lovely and memorable portrait of a desperate woman’s flight to a new life… Harrison’s lead is a strong and clever woman who is easy to admire, while the rest of the heroes, villains, and ambiguous sorts are as vividly drawn as the raw and terrible scenery of Montana. Readers will treasure Harrison’s rich characterization and sharp turns of phrase.” —Publishers Weekly.
“With The Widow Nash, Jamie Harrison breathes fresh life into a fascinating period of American history. Indeed, the past has not passed. The Widow Nash is an adventurous, ambitious, inventive novel by a writer to relish.” —Colum McCann.
