Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What happens when a trained killer discovers that his true vocation is love? Having survived the killing fields of World War I, Fidelis Waldvogel returns home to his quiet German village and marries the pregnant widow of his best friend who was killed in action.

With a suitcase full of sausages and a master butcher's precious set of knives, Fidelis sets out for America, getting as far as North Dakota, where he builds a business, a home for his family — which includes Eva and four sons-and a singing club consisting of the best voices in town.

When the Old World meets the New — in the person of Delphine Watzka — the great adventure of Fidelis's life begins. Delphine meets Eva and is enchanted; she meets Fidelis, and the ground trembles. These momentous encounters will determine the course of Delphine's life — and the trajectory of this brilliant new novel by Louise Erdrich
