Opinion

From Library Staff

A young ranch hand abandoned by his parents finds love from his surrogate grandparents but can't seem to love himself. Horace sets out to prove himself by becoming a boxer and desperately tries to become someone worthy, never quite believing that he already is. Bonus: this is by a local author.
