A new novel by Larry Watson is “Let Him Go.” It has been years since George and Margaret Blackledge lost their son James when he was thrown from a horse. It’s been months since his widow left with their only grandson, Jimmy and married another man. Margaret wants her grandson – the last of the family line – while George, a retired sheriff is none too eager to stir up trouble. When they locate Jimmy, they find themselves entangled with the Weboy clan and they are determined not to give the boy up without a fight. Sure to be a compelling read!
