Mavis Gallant Award-winning author Jack Todd-an American expat living in Canada-pens an epic work of historical fiction based partly on his own relatives. Spanning the Civil War to the Roaring Twenties, Sun Going Down details three generations of the Paint family as they work to find their places on the untamed American frontier. "This is an impressive, grand work that wants to sit next to Lonesome Dove [and] even mentioning them in the same breath should be telling enough."-Booklist

"Todd chronicles four generations of the Paint family through 70 years of hardship and heartache. Letters and diaries from the author's own family archives form the basis for these events and characters. Narrator James Jenner does his best to build listener interest in this hardscrabble story, which spans history from the Civil War to the Great Depression. His delivery is clear and crisp, with overtones of the dialects that reflect the people and places featured in the succeeding decades. But the story suffers from too much mundane detail about too few people with little effort to engage the listener through subplots and secondary characters. T.J.M.
