What happens to friends who find themselves competing against each other for the things they hold most dear? Which survives: friendship? ambition? love? glory? or “none of the above”? In author Jay Nelson’s riveting tale, Cold Creek, readers will embark on a unique and absorbing literary journey and adventure as it tells a story of shattering personal collisions in an intricate web of events.
Set in the last year before Vietnam grew from a foreign policy into a national obsession, Cold Creek explores the territory where friendship and loyalty collide with aspirations, love and secrets, in a place and time that are beginning to change, unexpectedly and forever. When four friends fall in love with the same girl, their competition for her opens fissures in their relations with her, each other, and their very selves and leads to consequences none of them could have believed possible.
Skillfully written, filled with lessons and wry humor, and framed by a place that is almost a character itself, Cold Creek is an engaging read that will provide readers a glimpse of conflicts at once unique and familiar to us all.
