Acclaimed novelist and literary nonfiction writer Sharon Butala's new novel is vividly filled with sodbusters and cowboys, fallen women and proper ladies, settlers and Indians. By the end of the first chapter, Sophie Hippolyte's husband Pierre will have been gone for three days, and the suspense, as a lone horseman approached their homesteader cabin in the southwest Saskatchewan of the 1880s, is palpable.
