A family's dark secrets are at the root of this rich novel set in rural Illinois. Alternating between the mysterious past and the unsettled present day, a father and son contend-individually-with complicated loyalties to parents, friends, lovers, and the land itself. What can a young man do? This is the central question of a complex story about love and obligation.
