Louise Erdrich, NBA finalist and NBCCA winner, pens distinctly American novels evoking the complex heritage and character of her native Midwest. The Boston Globe says Erdrich is "at the peak of her powers as a writer." In 1911, a terrible, blood-chilling crime was committed at the edge of the Ojibwe Reservation, east of the predominantly white town of Pluto, North Dakota. As time passes and memories fade, the past lies buried-until destiny comes calling.

Professional reviews

"Louise Erdrich richly details the lives of intertwined generations, white and Native American, in the town of Pluto, North Dakota. Kathleen McInerney shines as Evelina Harp, who tells what she knows about the mystery that haunts the town's residents, the unsolved murder of a family in 1911. Peter Francis James's deep voice provides an excellent counterpoint to McInerney's as he gives the perspective of Antone Bazil Coutts, another descendent whose life is deeply influenced by the events of the past. Erdrich is a master storyteller known for her compelling novels, and her lyrical, recursive narrative style is enriched by the narrators' ability to fully portray her characters. This ideal match of writer and readers creates a memorable and moving experience. R.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2009 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
