Summary

For fans of Brokeback Mountain and Legend of a Suicide, a story of a father's attempt to save his wayward son.
Set in a stunning but scarred Canadian landscape, The Mountain Can Wait is a story of fathers and sons and the heartache they cause each other, in the tradition of Annie Proulx. Tom Berry has always been a loner, a man content to live out his days in the wilderness with just enough ammunition and kerosene to last out the winter. A single father, he has raised his children with the same quiet and absolute dedication he brings to his forestry business, but now he's discovering that might not have been enough.
When his son, Curtis, on the brink of adulthood, disappears after a tragic accident, it falls to Tom, the hunter, to track him down. Whether he can truly reach Curtis is another matter.

Beautifully torturous

Maybe I can relate so much to this as a father but the characters are just fantastic and the setting is stunning. The book transports the reader into a simpler world of hard graft in rough Canadian outdoors. Tragic circumstance leads to difficult questions on morality and complex relationships within family. Loved it from start to finish and looking forward to more from this incredibly talented new author

Superb

A gripping meditation on fatherhood, fate and the call of the wilderness. a fantastic debut novel. Comparisons to Margaret Atwood are fully justified.
