In Montana 1948, Wesley Hayden has to make one of the toughest decisions of his life, do the right thing and arrest his brother, or let his brother off because they are family. In Wesley’s eyes, he felt that it would be better to stand up for justice instead of back up his family. As a result of standing up for justice, Wes paid a hard price. He was never his father’s favorite son, but when Wes arrests Frank (the perfect son), it doesn’t sit too well with Grandpa Hayden. Julian Hayden practically eliminates Wes from his family. “… sat together in the same pew (a surprisingly small group, considering the clan’s power in the country), but neither my aunt nor my grandparents would speak to us.” (167) Julian refused to even acknowledge Wes’ presence.
