Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This absorbing novel of the American Southwest introduces us to two unforgettable families — the Irish-Catholic Mahoneys and the Navajo Attcitys — who despite their differences are joined through shared history and tragedy. Two decades ago, Ryland Mahoney and Woody Attcity had both worked processing the radioactive concentrate yellowcake in a New Mexican uranium mill. Now both men are facing terminal illness. Woodys daughter is convinced that the mine is to blame and is determined to help her father fight for compensation. But Ryland wants no part of dredging up their past — or acknowledging his future — choosing instead to focus on his own daughters upcoming wedding.

Cumminss complex and fascinating characters shine through in a gripping read that is radiant with heartache and humor and the possibility of redemption.
