Waiting for White Horses, set in the tall pines of northern Minnesota's spectacular lake country, is a story of trusted friendship, loss and recovery, love and redemption. It's a book of wonderful characterizations of people, places and activities. The boreal forests of northern Minnesota, fishing and fall duck hunting made this book a real fun read for me.
The enduring friendship between Grant Thorson and Will Campbell is all that sustains Grant through a series of painful losses as the seasons pass. When Grant finds love in the arms of a beautiful woman it seems that happiness is once again within reach for him. But he is forced by yet another tragedy to reassess the high price he must pay for his dreams. From Minnesota to the White House, Grant must find a way to embrace the sometimes bitter struggle that is life. If this book were a movie it would be a hybrid chick flick written for men. I must say I'd never read anything quite like it!
If we are lucky, we all learn to wait for white horses... it's how we come to understand, through laughter and tears, the real value of the love of our lives. Indeed.....
