Description

Set on the Minnesota prairie in the late 1980s during a drought season that's pushing family farms to the brink, Little Wolves features the intertwining stories of a father searching for answers after his son commits a heinous murder, and a pastor's wife (and washed-out scholar of early Anglo-Saxon literature) who has returned to the town for mysterious reasons of her own. A penetrating look at small-town America from the award-winning author of The Night Birds, Little Wolves weaves together elements of folklore and Norse mythology while being driven by a powerful murder mystery; a page-turning literary triumph.

Professional reviews

"Maltman's most recent novel is a haunting, complex story that draws the listener into the small, troubled prairie town of Lone Mountain, Minnesota, where secrets are dark and lives are bleak. Hillary Huber's narration is as sparse as the desolate German farming community where the events take place. She builds the suspense, slowly pulling away layers of secrets with a minimalist delivery. Her measured pace and unembellished narration engage the listener with this community and its mysteries. As the novel moves smoothly between the past and present, reality and myth, the stories of Seth and newcomer Clara weave an intricate tapestry that slowly exposes the town's darkest secrets. N.E.M.
