Nobody Bodine came from a nobody and will always be a nobody. He can disappear into the shadows—no one can see him if he doesn’t want them to. He exists on the edge, in neither the white man’s world nor the tribe’s, dispensing vigilante justice when he sees fit. There’s no other place for a man like him in this world.
Until Melinda Mitchell shows up on the rez. From the first moment he lays eyes on her, he can tell there’s something different about her. For starters, she’s not afraid of him. She asks where his scars came from, and why he has so many. But more than that, she sees him. For the first time in his life, Nobody feels like a somebody in her eyes.
Melinda has come west to run the new day care on the White Sandy Reservation. She’s intrigued by this strange man and his tattered skin, and when she discovers that he’s a self-appointed guardian angel for the boy in her care, she realizes that there’s more to Nobody than meets the eyes. But how far will he go to keep the boy safe? And will she be able to draw him into the light?
If you follow me on twitter you'll know that recently I've been going through deadline hell so I haven't had much time for reading or reviewing, and then I moved! I was worried for a while that I'd never be able to read again.
Anyway, what you might now know is that Nobody was the best companion through this deadline hell. I was only able to read the book in little snippets here and there and it took me a whole two weeks to finish the book, but I looked forward to each five minute snippet that I grabbed.
