It's not often that one can describe a book as social work fiction, but that is what this book is. This book is also highly recommended for those with or without a BSW/MSW. It is the story of Pete Snow, a social worker working solo out of Tenmile, Montana and his fractured family and his attempts to make everything right for both his clients and his family. I was originally going to give this book four stars but then the ending happened and it was just right. A truly good read.
