Description

To Swallow the Earth (Western suspense, romance) Winner 2016 International Book Award and Laramie Award finalist. 108 years in the making! What if you came home after a journey and your family was no longer there? What if someone else was living in your house—and trying to kill you?

Wade Forester must stay in the shadows because, it seems, everyone has reason to shoot him. His father has disappeared, and his sister won’t speak to anyone. Beautiful Patricia Laughlin is searching for her family as well. Few people gain her trust or approval, though powerful landowner Bridger Calhoun just might be the man to do it. After a clash throws them to opposite sides, Wade must decide if risking his life to help Patricia is worth the trouble. Bridger must win Patricia’s heart, and Patricia must learn which killer to trust with her life.

Set in Nevada’s historic silver rush, and reminiscent of Crichton, Grey, and L’Amour, the writing comes from intimate knowledge of the era and area. Having lived off the land, Wilcox depended on his wit, grit, and strength—and that of his animals—for survival, just as these characters do. Wilcox and Beckstrand weave authentic detail and care for the terrain and its creatures into an adventure that will fill your lungs with the “rarefied air” of the old Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Comes with additional short story. Family friendly (ages 14 & up, diverse characters), 54,000 words, 200 pages, 5.25”x8” paperback, Hispanic protagonist, American Indians, strong heroine.
