Another incredibly powerful novel by Louise Erdrich. I thought I knew where the story was going but I was pleasantly surprised by the time I finished. Erdrich crafts immensely difficult subject matter into a story which I was compelled to read - I believe this is because of her gift in story-telling. She weaves characters together, whether it is trauma or ordinary coming-of-age situations, with such skill that the reader welcomes each one with open arms and hearts. I absolutely loved this book!
