Description
Set in the Stark country of Colorado's high plains, this vivid novel begins in 1898 and covers eighty years of western history. In beautifully crafted prose -- a rich, rough vernacular reminiscent of Larry McMurtry -- Kent Haruf brings to life Edith Goodnought, an enduring, undefeated woman who is caught in almost unbearable circumstances. Bound by love and duty to her crippled father and younger brother, she learns to survive with an iron code of service to others.Startlingly direct and with a moral vision and force the reader cannot turn away from, The Tie That Binds is an exceptional, award-winning novel.
