About

Overview

An Indie Next Pick
A Midwest Connections Pick

The award-winning author of The River Wife returns with a multi-generational family saga, set in the unforgiving Nebraska Sandhills in the years following the massacre at Wounded Knee — an ambitious tale of history, vengeance, race, guilt, betrayal, family, and belonging, filled with a vivid cast of characters shaped by violence, love, and a desperate loyalty to the land.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

“Agee brilliantly interweaves two stories of loss, guilt, and vengeance, which play out against the vivid backdrop of the [Nebraska] Sand Hills . . . Beautifully rendered and thought-provoking.”

— Booklist (starred)

“A deceptively leisurely, intensely heart-rending historical about greed and love gone wrong . . . Rose and Dulcinea are women strong enough to cow John Wayne. . . .[in] this sexy, violent, intricate Western.”
