The sisters Lexa and Mariah McCaskill wrestle with a past that has driven them away from domesticity and as far from their roots as they can get. Lexa has long been ready to settle down with Mitch; Mariah, a photographer who uses her camera to shield herself from the world, lands more reluctantly. And the figure from the generation that produced them, Mitch's father Lyle, both beguiles and exasperates as he attempts to rewrite events in his life before he leaves it.

A Time in the Mountains.
Ivan Doig, another Great Story!
The end is not unfamiliar to many of the boomers generation.
The discovery of Decades worth of secrets that adult aged children have NO business hearing. Yet I feel as though a goodly portion of us are being "let in on" the secrets as our parents pass into the next stage of their existence. Some parents pass away after laboring their children with these secrets, some drift into dimentia or alzheimer's but leave a memory these boomers would have been better off without ever thinking about, let alone having the details confirmed. Confirmed? Are the memories actually a recalling of real events or are they the passing parent's imagination as they pass into another rehlm? These belabored boomers can never get a completely factual answer.
Upon the finishing of Mountain Time (the first time) I wonder if these revelations made to us by our dying parents are true or a fantasy that the parents have had for scores of years.
My second (& no doubt, third) read will be to listen CLOSELY to the details.
I highly recommend this book, especially if you've been bestowed a "secret"!
