Invitation to a Hanging, by Karin Rathert

Mondak is a dying place Adam longs to escape.

In 1903, Alta, a sheltered socialite, marries a charming entrepreneur and runs away with him to boomtown on the prairie seeking romance and adventure. Years later, her orphan son discovers a prostitute’s diary while scavenging buildings for the town boss. The diary and a mangy circus tiger guide Adam on his journey through the past.

Invitation to a Hanging is the story of a place where desperation and dreams collide and a boy fights to find himself.
