Solitude Lost is the story of Clay Bannister, a man who enjoys living by himself in the cabin he built high up in the mountains thirty miles from the nearest town. Though many people would find his existence to be a lonely and meager lifestyle, it suited Clay perfectly. This perfection was not to last. Clay suddenly found himself snowbound in his cabin on the mountain, with a woman he did not know, who seemed to have a questionable, if not shady past. He learned that getting rid of this woman would be a harrowing experience before spring began to bud. Clay found himself willingly drawn in to her shady past shortly after their arrival in town. You will find their very different backgrounds, views of life, and snappy interactions to be not only interesting, humorous at times, but also a realistic snapshot of life itself.
