Waiting for White Horses is a romantic novel for both men and women (a macho chick book?). Yes, that’s what it is. Take a sportsman who has experienced the untimely loss of a wife and father to devastating illnesses; add an old flame and a new love interest plus the very best of a male hunting buddy. Then mix with some of the best descriptions and philosophies of duck hunting and fishing. Finally cook with the seasoning of emotional conflict, misguided misunderstandings between a father and his maturing daughter, and the flavorings of the Northern Midwest and Washington DC with its politics. What comes out of the literary oven is one of the most interesting and touching novels I’ve had the pleasure to review.

The author is an experienced journalist and, more importantly, one heck of an outdoors sportsman. He manages to balance an understanding of man’s natural hunter psyche with a sensitivity for women’s emotional needs. There is something for everyone, even dog lovers. His characters are real and understandable. His use of dialogue definitely captures the nuances of the regions. His settings are very visual. An added plus is a superbly designed book cover and a gorgeous interior design of the book.
