Mountain Song, a companion novel to At Sea, was released yesterday. It tells the story of David Ward, who grew up in the Montana mountains, deeply influenced by his medicine woman grandmother, who meets a Anne Hill from Florida while they are both employed as seasonal, college student employees at a resort hotel.
Destiny leads them into a summer romance. What destiny has planned for the after that is less clear, especially after Anne has a life-altering experience on a dark street near her college.
If you’ve visited Many Glacier Hotel in Glacier National Park, you’ll probably recognize Swiftcurrent Lake on the cover as well as Heavy Shield Mountain (called Mt. Wilbur until 2014) in the background.
