Erdrich drew me into the minds of her characters several books back, so I couldn't contain my excitement when I found out that she gave us all of the stories again from the perspective of Father Damien Modeste. All the pieces of the puzzle fall together perfectly, and we're left with all the right questions answered and still aching for her next installment in the stories of this community. As always, I stand in awe of Erdrich's ability to create such intricate lives and thoughts of such unique characters.

I expected to be distracted, at most, by this novel. It was an "in-between" book for me—it was supposed to be just an entertainment. I was distracted, yes—and further—I was genuinely effected by its story, its prose, and the histories Erdrich's fiction draws itself from. Louise Erdrich is a master story-teller who holds her readers right in the palm of her hand. A gorgeous tale: winding and variegated.

"Synopsis" by , For more than a half century, Father Damien Modeste has served his beloved people, the Ojibwe, on the remote reservation of Little No Horse. Now, nearing the end of his life, Father Damien dreads the discovery of his physical identity, for he is a woman who has lived as a man. To complicate his fears, his quiet life changes when a troubled colleague comes to the reservation to investigate the life of the perplexing, difficult, possibly false saint Sister Leopolda. Father Damien alone knows the strange truth of Sister Leopolda's piety and is faced with the most difficult decision of his life: Should he reveal all he knows and risk everything? Or should he manufacture a protective history though he believes Leopolda's wonder-working is motivated by evil?
