Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This remarkable tragedy sets the bar pretentiously high, but then somehow surpasses it....Lent proves himself capable of making improbable relationships captivatingly real....Haunted by an abominable crime against his family, [Blood is] a tragic character on the order of Lear. Lent renders his story in a spectacular fury of language that cracks and flashes with desperate insight into the nature of remorse and redemption. There are battles captured here with such raw clarity that you expect to find gunpowder stains on your hands when you put the book down. But the more stunning conflicts in this new masterpiece take place in a heart divided against itself." Ron Charles, The Christian Science Monitor (read the entire CSM review)

Review:

"[Lost Nation] proves that [Lent's] first success was no fluke....A dark and bloody tale about the power of guilt, the tragedy of misapprehension, and the will to survive, it offers a powerful yet compassionate exploration into the human condition..." Library Journal

Review:

"Lent's novel strains under the stylistic influence of Cormac McCarthy, making its way in long sentences with a paucity of commas and a surfeit of gore....However, it tells a rousing tale that will surely please the readers of his first, bestselling novel, In the Fall." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Bestselling author Lent retruns with "Lost Nation." Set in the early 19th century, the story opens with a man known only as Blood guiding an oxcart of rum toward a land where the luckless--or outlawed--have made a fresh start.
