In the 1960s, Tommy Bedford has the magnificent luck of escaping boarding school and moving to Hollywood to live with his older sister, rising ingénue Diane Reed, and her beau, suave cowboy actor Ray Montane. For a time, life is full and glamorous. But Hollywood has a darker side, and one day a shocking and deadly confrontation forces Diane and Tommy to flee.

Decades later, Tom Bedford has retreated into the isolated wilds of Montana. His biggest secret has corroded his life and ruined his marriage. Only when Danny, Tom's estranged son, is charged with murder while serving in Iraq is Tom finally forced to reckon with his demons. As he fights to save the son he has let slip away, Tom must confront the violence in his own past-and learn the true meaning of bravery.

Editorial Reviews

"The Brave is an engrossing tale that ... suggest[s] that, as Faulkner said, "The past isn't dead. It isn't even past." Fans of The Horse Whisperer won't want to miss this complex and satisfying story. For readers who have not had the pleasure of reading Evans, but are looking to get lost in a big novel with larger-than-life characters, The Brave is sure to fit the bill."-Kelly Blewett, BookPage
