I have been rereading louise erdricks books, and in this, her second, she really starts to show the amazing quality of her storytelling. two young orphans find their way to their aunt and uncle in north dakota, and even before they reach the door of the butcher shop their lives diverge and they go on to face their fates alone. the story is told by different characters in different times, from their own unique perspectives, and they all join to make this an incredible reading experience. all the characters are so delightly flawed, so desperate at times, you can almost see them. I laughed out loud many times reading this, and I wanted the book to go on and on. I hope you all read this and enjoy it as much as I did.
