Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Literary Fiction, 2013
New York Times best-selling author Stephen Harrigan lit up the publishing world with his Spur Award-winning The Gates of the Alamo. The remarkable follow-up to that acclaimed hit, Remember Ben Clayton further cements Harrigan’s place as a premier voice in American fiction.
Exiled to Texas with his grown daughter, sculptor Francis “Gil” Gilheaney is commissioned to create a statue for a man who recently lost his son in World War I. But as work on the statue progresses, secrets slowly reveal themselves and Gil’s fragile family threads begin to fray.

Guidall Reads Another Winner

A few years ago, I heard the book's narrator, George Guidall, speak at a conference where he mentioned recording this title and enjoying it a great deal. I finally got around to listening to it and just as he said, I loved it.

Surprisingly, the author somehow succeeds in combining the seemingly unrelated topics of World War I, the Wild West, the art of sculpting, and the role of women after the turn of the century into a wonderful novel.

Guidall, has long been one of my very favorites, and this book was no exception.

Beautifully Written - Beautifully Narrated

I absolutely loved this book. There are so many layers to the relationships between fathers and daughters, fathers and sons & living in the present by understanding the past. Harrigan delves into these remarkable characters until you care deeply about each of them. Fantastic combination of history, art and the wild west woven into a beautiful tapestry.
