On an Oregon ranch, a young woman struggles to overcome the past: "An eloquent meditation on patterns of grief, loss, and silence between generations" (Publishers Weekly). Avery is no stranger to the weight of loss, the way it shapes and defines the expanse of a life. The death of her sister, when Avery was just a child herself, engulfed her and her family—a mother driven mad, a father who disappeared, and all the while, neighbors and friends ignoring and surviving. The loss shades Avery's full being, becoming a deep part of her past and her future. Now a young woman, Avery has a life in Eastern Oregon ranch country filled with an acquired family: her partner Davis Lovell, along with his daughter and his grandparents. But when Avery suffers the loss of her and Davis's newborn child, it triggers and revives in her a familiar sense of guilt, one she has carried since childhood, in this "powerful [and] intelligently written" novel (Library Journal).
