Bandy Dorner, home from Vietnam, awakes with his car mired in a canal, his cabin reduced to ashes, and his pregnant wife preparing to leave town with her lover. Within moments, a cop lies bleeding on the road. Nearly two decades later, Bandy is released from prison, and on the family's Idaho ranch, he faces an unexpected reunion. Tracy, his now teenage son, has come to claim the father he's never known. Iona, Bandy's ex-wife, has come on the heels of her son. Haunted and hardened, the three struggle toward a shared future and a sense of family in this beautiful novel of devastating power.
