Kelli Jo Ford’s debut novel is both epic in scale and attentive to its smallest details. The book, which unfolds as a series of stories told from different perspectives, follows four generations of Cherokee women through decades of hardship while also deftly lingering on poignant moments, showing time and again how the family perseveres against a world seemingly determined to destroy them. Ford is herself a citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, and her rendering of the relationship between the scrappy Reney and her mother, Justine, is particularly vivid.
