Description
From the PEN USA Award–winning author comes a novel about a mother's haunting past, and her fight for redemption in the contemporary American West. Ten years ago, in an impulsive act of bravery, defiance, and recklessness, Tess Cross left her newborn daughter with her sister and hightailed it out of what she called NoWhere, Colorado. After taking a dark and dangerous path she's returned to her hometown in the eastern plains of the state, full of raw rage at herself and at the universe, yearning for a new life with the daughter she left behind. After a decade spent in a harsh and unpredictable world, striving for her child's forgiveness is the still most difficult burden she's yet to bear. Until the largest wildfire in Colorado history begins to spread. Yet for all its destructive fury, it's the secrets of Tess's own past—relentless and stalking—that ignites a threat to her already traumatized soul and the lives of all those she loves. "Through themes of remorse and redemption, acceptance and forgiveness, Pritchett, one of the West's most agile and evocative writers" (Booklist) delivers "a deeply beautiful and suspenseful new novel, one with the central questions: how much does a human life matter? And, how strong are the ties that bind us to family? This is a powerful book, one that I didn't want to end." —Christine Sneed, national bestselling author of Paris, He Said

But most of all, Tess is at the mercy of her own traumatized soul, and the weight of it is cracking her apart.
