When Marty wakes in the hospital, his life has been forever changed but thanks to her doctor (Dr. Feel Good, lol) he meets Dr. Dakota and is hired as a hand on the ranch he co-owns with Haven. While still in his wheelchair, Kota assigns him a few physical tasks while he goes through therapy but his main job is to sit with and care for Jefferson, Dakota's father.
As the story progresses, you watch the two men grow together as they struggle to overcome Marty's stroke and both men's homophobic families. But when Marty is forced to choose between his family and Quinn, will he follow his heart or succumb to the pressures of family and right wing, homophobic, politics?
An Isolated Range is a touching yet heart-wrenching story, one that I loved. There are a few events that while I knew they were coming, still brought heartache and tears, yet were wonderfully written by an author who is dedicated to his characters hearts and lives. Andrew gives his characters' voice while also showing us how life can be if we are strong enough to reach for it. I look forward to more from Andrew, and thank him for letting me get my hands on a eARC copy of a truly wonderful M/M story that touched my heart as it made me want to reach for a fan, lol.

This story is by far my favorite Range story to date. Besides getting to re-visit with old friends Dakota and Wally, Haven and Phillip, and Steve and Wilson, we get to meet Marty. I cannot imagine how it would be for a young man to go through what he did in this story-especially since Andrew based Marty on a a real person. He gets the perfect partner in Quinn, who has had no easy way of it himself.
I don't want to give too much away but I so agree with the other reviewer-you will read the last pages through tears of sadness and tears of joy!
Don't miss this one!!!
The story & characters are very, very well thought out & developed.
The story starts with the physical trauma Marty went through which brought him to Dakota & Wally's range - a long distance away; The characters working on or visiting this range; The wonderful relationship between Dakota & Wally & their open hearts & arms to Marty (& everybody else); The first encounter between Quinn & Marty & how this developed into another awesome relationship; The credible issues that challenged this blossoming relationship.
The eventual separation of Quinn from his belligerent father; The family from which Marty came - so absolutely real & believable; Marty's eventual standing up against his parents & his upbringing - a model for all struggling, coming of age gay men; The eventual acceptance & support of Marty's parents of his gay status & of his lover Quinn; And the eventual healing of Marty from the physical trauma which brought him & Quinn into each other's lives; The passion of the love-making between Marty & Quinn............... I can continue, but let it suffice to conclude that Andrew Grey is a masterful story teller.
I have never encountered another author that draws me so consistently & completely into his stories. It feels to me (with all 7 of his books read thus far) as if I am watching an invisible movie screen in my mind, which plays film versions of the stories Andrew Grey conjures up. Andrew, you are a blessing to our Gay Community (and to the many non-Gay people who must also be reading your amazing books, because most of the reviews I have checked so far on Andrew's books appear to be from non-Gay people).
If you are new to Andrew Grey's writing, or you have missed this book from 2012, I highly, highly recommend it. My final comment about this fantastic & captivating story/book is a score of 110%!!
This one made me cry and laugh....
