Summary
  • 'A deeply moving, gripping novel about one man's quest for redemption and his family's determination to learn the truth . . .' Layered with meaning, this remarkable novel deserves to be read more than once. The High Divide proves Enger's chops as a masterful storyteller.' 'Ann Weisgarber, author of The Promise' In 1886, Gretta Pope wakes one morning to discover that her husband is gone. Ulysses Pope has left his family behind on the far edge of Minnesota's western prairie, with only the briefest of notes and no explanation for why he left or where he's headed. It doesn't take long for Gretta's young sons, Eli and Danny, to set off after him, following the scant clues they can find, jumping trains to get where they need to go, and ending up in the rugged badlands of Montana. Short on money and beleaguered by a treacherous landlord, Gretta has no choice but to seek out her sons and her husband as well, leading her to the doorstep of a woman who seems intent on making Ulysses her own. While out in the wilderness, the boys find that the closer they come to Ulysses's trail, the greater the perils that confront them. Enger's breathtaking portrait of the vast Plains landscape is matched by the rich expanse of his characters' emotional terrain, as pivotal historical events'the turmoil of expansionism, the near total demise of the bison herds, and the subjugation of the Plains Indians'blend seamlessly with the story of a family's sacrifice and devotion.''Lin Enger sets out from the conventions of the traditional Western and brings the reader into new emotional territory, that of the soul of an exquisitely drawn American family. Told with caring patience and precise language, The High Divide is a novel to get lost in.' 'James Scott, author of The Kept'The High Divide, a novel about a family in peril, is haunting and tense but leavened by considerable warmth and humanity. Lin Enger writes with durable grace about a man's quest for redemption and the human capacity for forgiveness.' 'Benjamin Percy, author of Red Moon
  • Abandoned by her husband and her two sons who went out to search for him, Gretta Pope must follow her family across the rugged badlands of 1880s Montana
