Deal News: End of the Rope by Jan Redford

Jan Redford’s debut, END OF THE ROPE: Braving Mountains, Marriage and  Motherhood, in the tradition of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild,  set in the Rockies, in which a rash young climber bounces from mountain to mountain and relationship to relationship, then loses the love of her life in a climbing accident, becomes pregnant with his friend’s baby and struggles in a stormy marriage until she finally breaks free to pursue higher education and make her own way in life.
