One spring morning, as Alison Lomez watches her daughter, Rachel, waiting for the school bus in front of their house, she sees a coyote trot up to the seven-year-old and sit down. This encounter between species is the first of many in Lisa Lenard-Cook's novel of life in Valle Bosque, New Mexico. Anyone who lives in the twenty-first-century West will recognize Lenard-Cook's portrait of the space between farms and suburbs, old timers and newcomers. But her witty send-up of the environmental issues that vex refugees from city life serves as a powerful and serious means of examining the ways human beings cope with life's mysteries and its inevitable dangers. The complex relations between men and women, parents and children, brothers and sisters that make up the daily lives of Lenard-Cook's characters will make readers reflect on their own lives and relationship to wildness.

One of those little gems you would never expect to be so authentically well-written. The author has a way with words that is truly talented, and her characters inhabit a space in your imagination that is true and real. Not a false note to be heard.
