The bestselling author of “The Tiger’s Wife” presents an epic and original saga of the American West. In the lawless, drought-ridden lands of the Arizona Territory in 1893, two extraordinary lives collide. Nora is an unflinching frontierswoman awaiting the return of the men in her life—her husband, who has gone in search of water for the parched household, and her elder sons, who have vanished after an explosive argument. Lurie is a former outlaw and a man haunted by ghosts. The way in which Nora’s and Lurie’s stories intertwine is the surprise and suspense of this brilliant novel.
