This is a story of people shaped irrevocably by place and circumstance." "Seattle Times," "Best Books of 2015"

"A promising debut...the lyrical landscapes and the emotional weather are in place." --John Williams, "The New York Times" "Impressive...[a] tough, honest novel by a surprisingly wise young writer." --Ron Charles, "The Washington Post" "Hulse evokes the Montana landscape in lyrical, vivid prose...[she] is a gifted wordsmith with promising dramatic instincts." --"The Boston Globe" "The assured rhythms of the language convey grace, restraint, insights, power, and beauty. Black River transcends its setting and the circumstances of a few people in a small Montana town to say something true and enduring about violence and families, and grief and compassion." -- "Los Angeles Review of Books" "Transcending its genre-fiction setting, Black River is a powerful meditation on faith, family and redemption set in present-day Montana."--"The Guardian" "This first novel pulses with dramatic tension and emotional resonance... Hulse s story is lyrical, elegiac and authentic. Watch for it on best-of-the-year lists." -- BBC Culture

"This top-of-the-line modern American Western debut explores the themes of violence, revenge, and forgiveness with a sure hand...From the bluegrass theme to the Western rural setting, Hulse handles his story like a pro."--"Publishers Weekly," starred and boxed review "Heads up Hulse is a smart writer, able to reveal her character s gut-level emotions and trickiest self-manipulations. Comparing the author to Annie Proulx, Wallace Stegner, or Kent Haruf is no exaggeration. Her debut is bound to turn readers hearts inside out and leave them yearning for some sweet, mournful fiddle music." --"Library Journal," starred review "Hulse debuts with a stark, tender tale about one man's quest for faith and forgiveness...By making Wes' suffering so palpable, Hulse makes it even more moving when, in the novel's final pages, he achieves something he's been seeking for a very long time: grace. Profound issues addressed with a delicate touch and folded into a strong story populated by wrenchingly human characters: impressive work from a gifted young artist." --"Kirkus," starred review "Hulse clearly loves Montana, and her own fiddle playing and knowledge of horses shine through the novel. She maintains suspense and manages to avoid the cliches of redemption stories in this assured debut." --"Booklist," starred review""Black River "tackles themes of Old Testament proportion the inheritance of sin, deliverance and damnation, good and evil. Its characters wrestle with their pasts and each other; their collisions arefilled withrage, miscommunication, and occasionally the wistful hope for a second chance. With an empathic touch, this sophisticated debut illuminates how fine a line there can be between vengeance and redemption. This is a story you won t forget. Siobhan Fallon, author of "You Know When the Men Are Gone" "The prose in S.M. Hulse's debut novel "Black River" mirrors the Montana land in which it's set: spare, powerful, and dangerous. This is a novel about love born from violence, about families torn apart by tragedy, and about a community that must take a long, hard look at its past if it's ever going to see its future. Like Kent Haruf and Larry McMurtry, S.M. Hulse knows the landscape about which she writes, and she understands the hearts of those who live there." Wiley Cash, author of the NYT bestselling "A Land More Kind Than Home" and "This Dark Road to Mercy " "Hulse writes with great clarity and precision, her language a celebration of rigor and intensity, and with such awareness of human rage and love and fear of love that her novel "Black River" feels like a river itself, teeming and unexpected and driven. She has an amazing sensibility for creating the understated, the emotionally-pressurized, the contained-and-explosive, the unsaid-and-impossible-to-say. One of the great joys of reading this novel is watching how she manages this and how her perfect balance allows her deeper and deeper insights into the ways that people, especially men, negotiate their love for, and their fear of, each other and themselves." Kent Meyers, author of "The Work of Wolves " "Like her forbears Kittredge, Proulx, Carlson, Hulse examines the mountains and rivers of the west, its implacable beauty, and makes the landscape her own. In Wesley Carver she has made a mountain of her own, fashioned and then refashioned by the forces of memory, bitterness, and finally, forgiveness. A wonderful debut by a welcome new voice." Ehud Havazelet, author of "Bearingthe Body" "A lovely austerity infuses this story of damage and redemption, and makes it glow. Hulse is a wise and compassionate writer who understands the tricky and heartbreaking borders between principle and rigidity, justice and revenge. Her debut novel is provoking and memorable." Deirdre McNamer, author of "Red Rover" and "My Russian" "Black River "is one of the best debut novels I've read in a long time. S.M. Hulse is a smart and sensitive writer, utilizing strong, clean and evocative prose to tell us of Wes Carver, a man who is wrestling with the world and himself, haunted by an old horror, tattered family bonds, a wife who is dead but not gone. Daniel Woodrell, author of "Winter s Bone," "The Maid s Version," and others "Black River" is such a vivid, compelling debut novel. S.M. Hulse is an astute guide to an implacable western landscape of grief, violence and redemption. Jess Walter, author of "Beautiful Ruins," "The Financial Lives of the Poets," and others"

Reseña del editor:

A tense Western and an assured debut, Black River tells the story of a man marked by a prison riot as he returns to the town, and the convict, who shaped him.When Wes Carver returns to Black River, he carries two things in the cab of his truck: his wife s ashes and a letter from the prison parole board. The convict who held him hostage during a riot, twenty years ago, is being considered for release.

Wes has been away from Black River ever since the riot. He grew up in this small Montana town, encircled by mountains, and, like his father before him and most of the men there, he made his living as a Corrections Officer. A talented, natural fiddler, he found solace and joy in his music. But during that riot Bobby Williams changed everything for Wes undermining his faith and taking away his ability to play.

How can a man who once embodied evil ever come to good? How can he pay for such crimes with anything but his life? As Wes considers his own choices and grieves for all he s lost, he must decide what he believes and whether he can let Williams walk away.

With spare prose and stunning detail, S. M. Hulse drops us deep into the heart and darkness of an American town.
