Set in the vast and unforgiving prairie of eastern Montana from 1916 to 1946, In Open Spaces is the compelling story of the Arbuckle brothers:
GeorgeA rising baseball star who mysteriously drowns in the river
JackA World War I veteran who abandons his family only to return to reclaim the family ranch
BobThe youngest brother, whose marriage to Helen creates a fault line between him and the rest of his family
BlakeA shrewd, observant man burdened with growing suspicions of Jack's role in his brother's death
With breathtaking descriptions of the Montana landscape, Russell Rowland masterfully weaves a fascinating tale of the psychological wars that can rip a family apart…and, ultimately, the redemption that can bring them back together.
