"Paul Legler's Song of Destiny is a wise knitting of a stoic family's troubling disintegration and penitent redemption in the starkest of places and darkest of times. Revealed with a compassionate eye and generous hand, Legler's prose will guide you through the coldest of Dakota snows." - Nicole Helget, author of The Turtle Catcher
"A novel that tells one family's odyssey through an experience many of us have had . . . I know this time . . . I recognize these people . . . a remarkable job." - Doug Hamilton, Prairie Public Radio
From the back cover: Jake was the ultimate big brother: cool, suave with the girls, tough, and a Vietnam veteran. Peter, the younger brother, was always the "good kid," eventually becoming a monk at St. John's Abbey. But they came of age at a time when sex, drugs, and rock & roll blasted onto the prairie. Thirty years later, neither brother can escape his past.
