9780060835279: The Beet Queen (P.S.)

A beautifully repackaged reissue of the magical novel from Louise Erdrich, winner of America’s prestigious National Book Award for Fiction in 2012.

On a cold spring morning in 1932, two children, Karl and Mary Adare, leap from a boxcar. Orphaned in a most peculiar way, Karl and Mary have come to Argus, in the heart of rural North Dakota, to seek refuge with their aunt Fritzie.

So begins an exhilarating tale, spanning some forty years and brimming with unforgettable characters: ordinary Mary, who causes a miracle; seductive, restless Karl, who lacks his sister's gift for survival; Celestine James, Mary's life-long friend; and Celestine's fearless, wild daughter Dot – the Beet Queen.
