Book Synopsis

Kauffman sets his book in the 1970s, when Kevin Jamison —trying to escape his drafting in the US military— mounts his steed and rides into the mountains of Idaho. It is no sooner than thirty years later that we find Kevin living in the backcountry valleys of the Sawtooth Mountains, Idaho. He encounters an injured woman and two children on his day out and takes them back to his cabin in order to help them. Months go by in recovery as the woman, Patricia Anne Albertson, recovers from the trauma and betrayal of her husband, all the while growing closer to Kevin. A year later, Kevin returns to civilization only to be arrested for a crime he did not commit. Exiled is a book filled with adventure, self-discovery, romance, and drama, sure to change people’s perspectives on the nature of human connections once picked up.
