Publisher's Summary

Thomas Savage, a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship and a PEN/Faulkner Award nominee, has long been a critically acclaimed author. The New Yorker calls him "a writer of the first order". This starkly elegant story details the lives of Emma Russell Sweringen and her family in the early 1900s. Emma’s daughter Beth secretly gave up a baby girl for adoption many years ago. Now, Beth’s secret life is being unraveled as her daughter comes looking for her long-lost family.

Excellent in all respects

I chose this book for the narrator whom I always enjoy listening to. I knew nothing about the story and was very pleasantly surprised by how interesting it was. The sheep queen is the very intelligent and enterprising matriarch of the family living in the mountains of the Northwest. I was sorry when the story reached an end. Maybe I'll listen to it again some day.
