"Even today, we can discover real-life characters like the men we've met within Hemingway's prose -- men with unassuming courage who build communities and nations with their hard labor, fierce loyalty, love of family and friends, and deep souls searching for those things found beyond the seen and unsaid. Carlson Aesara points us toward these men, and one in particular, in a story that leaves much for the reader to discover between the subtleties. There are heartbreaking losses, deep love shared between friends -- and quite obviously siblings -- and also heroes we discover that could easily be missed in a contemporary life that is easily blinded to such. A story, and characters, to ponder long after the last word." Cindy Martinusen Coloma
