Lost Wyoming book cover

Debra’s most recent book is the novel Lost Wyoming, a story about love, loss, and family ties. In it, a bright, thoughtful, yet thoroughly disillusioned young woman wonders why her life hasn’t turned out the way she thought it would and what, if anything, she can do about that. When a family crisis jolts her out of her malaise, she is forced to rethink the meaning and the import of the losses that inevitably accompany growing up, and to take stock of the choices and beliefs that have kept her from being the person, and living the life, she always envisioned.

Lost Wyoming “examines the complexities of relationships, the challenges of communicating feelings, and the difficulties of discovering what one really wants….[Snider] makes some deft observations and asks some important, universally relevant questions…. Her prose remains eloquent and often beautiful throughout.” —Kirkus Reviews
