About this title


The arrival of a bitter and exhausted young woman and her baby in the small town of Madrid, Montana, sparks her struggle to deal with the harsh realities of the past, as well as with the colorful and complex inhabitants of the town

From Library Journal:

Northern Montana in the 1960s is "man's country." While the building of underground missile silos has changed the economic and physical features of the area, it has done nothing to enhance customs or the status of women. This is the story of Dorrie Vane, who escapes to Chicago but returns two years later an unwed mother. Family relationships and former friendships no longer work for her, but then neither do new relationships. Dorrie struggles with the reality of her mother's mental illness, her father's radical political activities, and her own changed status, often relying on fantasy to maintain her mental well-being. McNamer captures in beautiful prose the harsh realities of Montana life, making her debut as a novelist with this touching analysis of the modern Western woman.
