Sara and Preston, along with Sara’s clairvoyant brother Jasper, flee Arizona when they run afoul of American Indian artifact hunters. They arrive in Utah’s Heber Valley seeking shelter with Sara’s uncle, but they soon learn that they cannot escape the burden of memory or the crimes of the past. Set in the late 19th century, this rich, layered story resonates with the work of such authors as Cormac McCarthy and Wallace Stegner.
