"Given Canty’s fondness for the American loner and the lonely landscape of the American West, it’s no wonder that his latest novel is set in rural Montana in winter, or that his two principal characters–and ex-Senator’s granddaughter and a Native American carpenter–share nothing but a sense of isolation in their respective worlds. Tragedy unites them, and, caught in the narrow judgment of a small town, they are surprised to discover that sometimes solace requires someone else.  –The New Yorker

"Canty’s forte is to examine human relationships with the precision of a Sue Miller or Louise Erdrich within the context of a fast-moving narrative.  Once he’s got you in his thrall, you’re  as helpless as his lovers in the hands of fate."  –Newsday

"A brilliant second novel that confirms the arrival of a major new talent in fiction."  –Minneapolis Star-Tribune
