About the Book

“Wonderful. . . hopeful, wrenching, funny, sexy, intense, and penetratingly true.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review

From acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Louise Erdrich comes a tale of spiritual death and reawakening; of money, desperate love, and wild hope; and of the enduring power of cherished dreams.

At the crossroads of his life, Lipsha Morrissey is summoned by his grandmother to return to the reservation. There, he falls in love for the very first time—with the beautiful Shawnee Ray, who’s already considering a marriage proposal from Lipsha’s wealthy entrepreneurial boss, Lyman Lamartine. But when all efforts to win Shawnee’s affections go hopelessly awry, Lipsha seeks out his great-grandmother for a magical solution to his romantic dilemma—on sacred ground where a federally sanctioned bingo palace is slated for construction.

Critical Praise

“Beautiful. . . . Shows us a place where love, fate and chance are woven together like a braid, a world where daily life is enriched by a powerful spiritual presence.” — New York Times Book Review

“Erdrich is a masterful storyteller . . . [Her] imagination is sacred and sacrilegious at once; the deepest feeling and wisdom leap out like fireworks from the most hilarious, or blasphemous, scenes.” — San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

“Wonderful...hopeful, wrenching, funny, sexy, intense, and penetratingly true.” — Pam Houston, Los Angeles Times Book Review
