Description - Then Came the Evening by Brian Hart

Bandy Dorner, home from Vietnam, awakes with his car mired in a canal, his home reduced to ashes, and his pregnant wife preparing to leave town with her lover. Within moments, a cop lies bleeding in the road. Nearly two decades later, Bandy is released from prison. His parents are gone, but on the derelict family ranch, Bandy faces a different reunion. Tracy, his now teenaged son, has come to claim the father he's never known, and Iona, Bandy's ex-wife, has come on the heels of her son. All three are damaged, hardened, haunted. But amidst the ice and rock of the raw Idaho landscape, they attempt to piece back together a family that never was, and to discover if they belong together at all. With resolute honesty and restrained beauty, Brian Hart explores the hopes and limitations of his characters as they struggle toward a shared future.
