From the award-winning author of The River Wife, this is a multi-generational family saga set in the unforgiving Nebraska Sand Hills in the years following the massacre at Wounded Knee.At its centre are two remarkable women: Dulcinea, returned after bitter years of self-exile, yearns for redemption and the courage to mend her broken family and reclaim the land that is rightfully hers; and Rose, scarred by the terrible slaughters that have decimated and dislocated her people, struggles to accept the death of her sister Star, and refuses to rest until she is avenged. A kaleidoscopic portrait of misfits, schemers, chancers and dreamers, Jonis Agee’s bold novel is a panorama of America at the dawn of a new century. A beautiful evocation of this land – its sweeping prairies, seas of golden grass, and sandy hills, The Bones of Paradise is a remarkable achievement: a mystery, a tragedy, a romance, and an unflagging exploration of the beauty and brutality, tenderness and cruelty that defined the settling of the American West.
