    We were bound up, you and I Though it break our hearts, we had as little choice then as we have now This is one of those books that I ve been dreading writing the review for because nothing I say can really convey what makes it so great I like literary fiction, but it s rare that I will pick up anything that s straight up literature This particular book interested me for two reasons the historical, western context, and the promise of supernatural elements.Inland doesn t disappoint on eith We were bound up, you and I Though it break our hearts, we had as little choice then as we have now This is one of those books that I ve been dreading writing the review for because nothing I say can really convey what makes it so great I like literary fiction, but it s rare that I will pick up anything that s straight up literature This particular book interested me for two reasons the historical, western context, and the promise of supernatural elements.Inland doesn t disappoint on either front The story follows two main characters, Lurie of the Mattie gang, and Nora Lark of a small town called Amargo, in the Arizona territory It isn t until the very end that the reader comes to understand how and why these two stories are being told side by side That s all I m saying about that because it s just better that you know nothing going in.This is a character driven story, with Nora s part of it happening over I think the course of one day, from morning to n...
