Evans manages to capture the beauty and wildness of his settings and reflect this in the lives of his characters and none so much as Helen Ross, wolf biologist, who has enthusiastically thrown herself off in to the Rocky Mountains to defend a pack of wolves. However the locals are determined to see these threatening creatures destroyed forever and when Helen finds herself romantically involved with the son of her fiercest opponent in the town the sparks begin to fly.

If you like Nicholas Evans you might also like to read books by Douglas Kennedy, Leif Enger and Thomas Eidson.

Synopsis

The Loop by Nicholas Evans

Helen Ross, a twenty-nine-year-old biologist, is sent to a sleepy Rocky Mountain ranching town to defend a pack of wolves from those who want to destroy them. For in Hope, Montana, a century ago, the wolf was slaughtered to extinction and though now protected by law as an endangered species, the old hatred runs deep. Alone in this hostile place, bruised by a broken love affair, Helen struggles for self-esteem and survival, embarking on a dangerous alliance with the son of her most ferocious opponent, the brutal and charismatic Buck Calder. Form its heart-stopping first chapter to its devastating climax, The Loop, set in the same vast landscape as The Horse Whisperer, is an epic tale of passion and redemptive love.
