Sunday Afternoon Book Group



The unsolved murder of a farm family still haunts the white small town of Pluto, North Dakota, generations after the vengeance exacted and the distortions of fact transformed the lives of Ojibwe living on the nearby reservation.

Part Ojibwe, part white, Evelina Harp is an ambitious young girl prone to falling hopelessly in love. Mooshum, Evelina's grandfather, is a repository of family and tribal history with an all-too-intimate knowledge of the violent past. And Judge Antone Bazil Coutts, who bears witness, understands the weight of historical injustice better than anyone. Through the distinct and winning voices of three unforgettable narrators, the collective stories of two interwoven communities ultimately come together to reveal a final wrenching truth.

    Rating of 6.7, ranging from 5 to 8. Comments were: Challenging read due to complexity of character relationships and number of story lines; well written; interesting to read about Native Americans; could be read as a series of related short stories rather than a novel.

    This book rates a 4, though I read less than 100 pages. But that is why I read so little of it.
    I've started "County", and it is excellent.

    So sad to miss this. I will be returning from a trip that day. Still reading the book, love it thus far.
