Please welcome author Janet Fox who joins us as part of our Montana Author Month. Montana fiction written by authors who have lived in or spent a significant amount of time in the state.
Janet answers the question . . . What do you like best about living in Montana?
For thirty years my husband and I came to Montana every summer and lived in our small mountain cabin while we lived the rest of the year elsewhere. For thirty years we promised ourselves we'd one day live in Montana year round - and we've made that dream come true. I love the big sky. I love looking out the window and seeing the mountains. I love being able to experience the wilderness whenever I wish. I love the remoteness and isolation and I love the people. I can't imagine now living anywhere else.

FAITHFUL by Janet Fox
In 1904 Margaret Bennet has it all – money, position, and an elegant family home in Newport, Rhode Island. But just as she is to enter society, her mother ruins everything, first with public displays, and then by disappearing. Maggie’s confusion and loss are compounded when her father drags her to Yellowstone National Park, where he informs her that they will remain. At first Maggie’s only desire is to return to Newport. But the mystical beauty of the Yellowstone landscape, and the presence of young Tom Rowland, a boy unlike the others she has known, conspire to change Maggie from a spoiled girl willing to be constrained by society to a free-thinking and brave young woman living in a romantic landscape at the threshold of a new century.
