“The Sojourn,” by Andrew Krivak. A multigenerational saga that starts in late 1800s in a Colorado mining town and then moves to World War I in Austria-Hungary and then to Italy’s Alps. This is a “man” story of love and brotherhood. Historically researched, a pleasure to read. Thanks to Birchbark Books for the recommendation; this was an unexpected gift.
