The first endorsement for NEVER LET GO is in from NY Times bestselling historical fiction author Jane Kirkpatrick!

“With exquisite detail and a compelling narrative, Pamela Nowak has once again penned a remarkable story and has reset the horrifying events of Lake Shetek, Minnesota in 1862 in our imaginations. The women and their men in Never Let Go come to life as do their hopes and dreams and disappointments. One cannot read this book without wondering how we would have fared in the decisions required: How to survive, how to forgive and how to go on and when to say good-bye. Never Let Go is an extraordinary gift of story-telling.”
–Jane Kirkpatrick, NY Times bestselling author of One More River to Cross
