When ostracized daughter Agnes Clayton, now middle-aged and alone, returns to the wilds of the Northwest after a life in various western cities, she is determined to make moving her father out of their family home in War Creek as quick and painless as possible.

Reconnecting with her estranged father, a retired ranger, proves difficult at best, and extracting him from his fiercely beloved ranger station seems impossible. Over the course of a long summer she becomes entangled with opposing forces in the isolated rural community in the Cascade Mountains. Agnes hopes to answer questions from her past and find not only closure but redemption.

War Creek exposes the dark secrets that lurk in every family. Set in stunningly harsh yet beautiful wilderness, the novel bridges past and present to reveal the hidden truths Agnes so desperately seeks. Susan Marsh's debut novel poignantly explores family dynamics riddled with guilt, grudges, and half-truths.

Susan Marsh worked for the U.S. Forest Service for over 20 years and is now a writer and photographer in Wyoming. War Creek is her first novel.
