Publisher's Summary

From award-winning author Chris Cander comes a wrenching and suspenseful short story about grief.

County Sheriff Brody Hayes is in the midst of a missing person's call - for a five-month-old baby. Deep in the mountains of his hometown, Bowie, Wyoming, Brody's desperate search for the helpless child through a worsening snowstorm leads him on an even greater journey - one through his memories of his childhood, his brother, his son, and a life for himself that he thought was lost.

Gripping, atmospheric, and utterly memorable, Grieving Conversations will at once cause your heart to pound and break.

“Cander is a smart, deft storyteller.” (The New York Times Book Review)

“Cander has a gift for description.” (Houstonia Magazine)

Touched My Soul to the Core

I never really read anymore, but I found a book I so desired to read. I ordered the hard copy for my library with the intention of reading it. Sadly, I never did. That is when I discovered Audible. This book is the first one I have listened to from start to finish. The experience was so beneficial to me, I cannot wait to find it again. This book grabbed my attention, because of the location and setting of the story. It was a full-bodied experience for me. The story, the voice, and the author's mindset touched me on a deeply spiritual level. When it ended, I mentally said, 'No, no...come back to me!'

Gripping

I thought this would be a morose story but on the contrary it's very gripping and interesting for the listener.

Left Me Wanting More

Excellent short story. Too short. I am hoping for a full novel with Sheriff Brody. Interesting characters and story line. Narrator was right-on. A+.
