THE DISTANCE HOME takes place in the stark, rolling fields of the author's home state of South Dakota. Set during the Baby Boom years of post-war America, it examines the relationship between ever-achieving sister Rene, shy and sweet brother Leon, and their slowly distancing parents. Both sharp and tender in turn, this is a truly fantastic work of literary fiction from a new author on the scene.
