If you are from Minnesota or the Dakotas you may find it interesting because of the local upper midwest context and its view of early settlers point of view and because it is a Minnesota author.


Really liked it!

I really liked this beautifully written book. It had great characters that made the story seem very realistic.


Exceptional story

by Katey on Jan 22, 2008

I absolutely loved this book and found it to be almost impossible to put down. The characters are richly drawn and played upon their stage. The pages turn fast when reading this novel. Delphine was my favorite character along with Markus. Their interaction was as if they really were mother and son. Fidelis was a bit one dimensional but overall interesting. This story itself conveyed to me the starkness of it's time setting and gave a good look at North Dakota from a different angle than is normally given for this state. This book gives an accurate description of the kind of people who came and settled this land and persevered. The story very much interested me and I have recommended it to several friends who I know will enjoy it as much as I did. Ms. Erdrich is a very talented writer and I intend to read more of her books.


Enjoyed the ride

by casinada on Oct 25, 2007

I read this as one of my book club's selections, otherwise I would probably never have picked up this title to read. I enjoyed the colorful, diverse cast of characters, was at times surprised by events and situations, intrigued by the proseful descriptions, but went willingly along for the ride. Some in book club faulted the author for the easy acceptance of delphine by eva and their instant bond, but having made instant connections in life myself, i found their relationship believable. others found fault in the fact the master butcher's singing club really had nothing to do with the plot. this is true, a waste of a good title! a good read, not a great book, with some loose ends loosely tied in the end.
