Michael Dorris has crafted a fierce saga of three generations of Indian women| beset by hardships and torn by angry secrets| yet inextricably joined by the bonds of kinship.
Starting in the present day and moving backward| the novel is told in the voices of the three women: fifteen-year-old part-black Rayona; her American Indian mother| Christine| consumed by tenderness and resentment toward those she loves; and the fierce and mysterious Ida| mother and grandmother whose haunting secrets| betrayals| and dreams echo through the years| braiding together the strands of the shared past.
