Love and Country by Christina Adam
Love and Country is set over the course of one year in Idaho, where 14-year old Kenny Swanson and his mom, Lenna, have moved. Kenny's passion is rodeo, but he's unable to ride for the school team because of his lack of health insurance. Being the outsider and yearning for the father he rarely sees, Kenny is drawn to rodeo star, Roddy Moyers, and Cynthia Dustin, a rancher's daughter. As the lives of Kenny, Lenna, Roddy, and Cynthia intertwine against the backdrop of a land that is hard on its denizens, Love and Country becomes a coming-of-age story where the realities of life force them all to deal with love and forgiveness. The San Francisco Chronicle says, "Kenny's dreams, Lenna's longings, Moyers' seductiveness and Cynthia's sexuality become touchstones for understanding how simple yet complex life can be when we are tested at the deepest level."
