Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What happens when a trained killer discovers, in the aftermath of war, 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, killed in action. With a suitcase full of sausages and a master butcher's precious set of knives, Fidelis sets out for America and settles in Argus, North Dakota. Over the years he works hard, building a business, a family, and a singing club consisting of the best voices in town. When Delphine Watzka, a daughter of Argus, meets Fidelis, the ground trembles. This momentous encounter changes the course of their lives, and determines the trajectory of this brilliant new book by one of America's most acclaimed novelists.
