I know I shouldn't have been surprised, but...

Nowhere Ranch - Heidi Cullinan

I was, I was blown away by this one.


'My name is Monroe Davis, and this is the story of how I found home.' and what a beautifully told story it was. I felt like I was in Nebraska sitting with Munroe or Roe as he preferred to be called while he told me about his life.


For Roe, life didn't start out easy. But he took what it gave him and he dealt with in the best way he knew how. After being rejected by his family and doing time in jail he decides it's time to move on and he does. Problem is he just keeps moving and keeps moving never putting down roots until he ends up at Nowhere Ranch which turns out to be the perfect somewhere for Roe. In spite of his resistance this is where he starts to unknowingly put down roots and make friends only to suddenly realize that he no longer wants to run. 


The kink in this book was a little more than what I'm normally use to but, I found it to be well written and integral to the progress of the story as well as understanding Roe and his relationship with  Travis. 


The ending of this book was for me perfect and beautiful and even if the rest of the book hadn't been as well done as it was the ending would have made it so worth reading.
