Book Lust with Nancy Pearl featuring Jamie Harrison

Nancy Pearl sits down with author Jamie Harrison, who wrote the acclaimed Blue Deer series of mystery novels set in a fictionalized Livingston, Mont., to discuss her new novel "The Widow Nash." Harrison tells the story of Dulcy Remfrey, a young woman who flees a violent suitor, fakes her own death and pursues a new life in early 1900's Montana. Described by many as a "feminist Western," the book spans continents and decades, engaging in moral questions that will resonate with modern readers.
