This novel told in stories follows four generations of Cherokee women across four decades. It begins in 1974 in Eastern Oklahoma’s Indian Country where 15-year-old Justine is growing up in a family of tough, complicated, and loyal women, presided over by her mother, Lula, and Granny. Eventually Justine and her daughter Reney move to Texas in the hope of finding a more stable life, but they struggle to survive in a world where unreliable men and natural forces such as wildfires and tornados threaten their connections to one another and their very ideas of home.
