In the wake of the Civil War, a seventy-year-old retired army captain does live readings to paying audiences hungry for news of the world. He is offered a $50 gold piece to deliver a young orphan, raised by Kiowa raiders who killed her family, to relatives she doesn’t remember 400 miles away. This exquisitely rendered, morally complex novel explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.
