Description

Winner of New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards (2014) in Fiction (other) and Best Book/New Mexico categories

Skye Elliot is given a choice after her car accident-jail or rehab-and her ex-husband, a bull rider who introduced her to the party scene, gets custody of their four-year-old daughter Gracie. It takes Skye eight months to get clean, but the day she is released, she has one plan: to be a good mother-better, at least, than Skye's own selfish mother and absent dad.

Owen Garret hasn't seen his daughter in ten years. He, too, needs to make amends. Newly out of prison, he picks her up from rehab and together they set off to find Gracie, and to forge a relationship that transcends the hurt and anger that have brewed between them for almost a decade. In the meantime, they find Margaret Yearwood, too-Owen's lost love whom he left when he turned himself in for a long-ago crime.

Owen's Daughter is a stand-alone novel that brings back characters from Mapson's treasured novel Blue Rodeo , and introduces them to the beloved cast of Solomon's Oak and Finding Casey . With its father-daughter story and characters who overcome personal failings against great odds, Owen's Daughter is a story of love and family that will enchant Mapson fans both old and new.
