Maud's Line

Margaret Verble


FINALIST FOR THE PULITZER PRIZE

A debut novel chronicling the existence and loves of a headstrong, earthy, and magnetic heroine

jap Oklahoma, 1928. Eighteen-year-old Maud Nail lives along with her rogue father and delicate brother on one of many allotments parceled out via the U.S. executive to the Cherokees whilst their land was once confiscated for Oklahoma’s statehood. Maud’s days are jam-packed with exertions and easy pleasures, yet usually marked by way of violence and tragedy, a incontrovertible fact that she accepts with decided practicality. Her customers for a greater existence are narrow, but if a newcomer with attractiveness and books rides down her part line, she takes realize. quickly she unearths herself dealing with a chain of high-stakes judgements that would make certain her destiny and people of her enjoyed ones.

Maud’s Line is out there, sensuous, and shiny. it's going to sit down at the bookshelf along novels via Jim Harrison, Louise Erdrich, Sherman Alexie, and different liked chroniclers of the yankee West and its people.
