Montana, 1948 by Larry Watson – Book Review


David Hayden lives in a small town in Montana with his parents. His father followed in the footsteps of his father into law enforcement while his brother, war hero and all around top bloke, became a doctor. But as ugly truths come about the doctor, the family struggles as they battle loyalty, truth and justice.

It’s a simple story, told from the perspective of one who was a child at the time of the events, and in this way, it reminds me a little of How to Kill a Mockingbird. And wow, does it pack a punch. This is a novella that hurts to read, that makes you wish that you could make the world a better place. Brilliant.
