When the narrator of this richly imagined novel begins telling her story, in 1992, her tyrannical father has just died in a mysterious house fire. Was it an accident? Suicide? Murder? This burning question compels Idaho painter and writer Rennie England to take stock of her life. A wonderful shimmer of ambiguity envelops all the vivid players in this novel, including the violent but sometimes tender father and the love of Rennie’s life, David, a shadowy romantic who dies in Tel Aviv amid a cloud of political intrigue. Parker knows well the vast beauty of the American West. Her vivid descriptions and precise, unsentimental writing make this an enthralling family saga.
