I wasn t captivated by The Tiger s Wife so I almost wasn t going to read this But I kept reading so much about it that my interest was piued and I have to say that I was very captivated by this western story There are two narratives which for most of the novel felt very disconnected but when they did it was an amazing thing Lurie a Middle Eastern immigrant is brought to Missouri by his father in 1856 When his father dies Lurie is sold to the Coachman who picks up the dead and robs graves He finds brothers in Donovan and Hobb Mattie and soon becomes an outlaw Nora s is the second narrative and it s 1893 in Amargo Arizona Territory where homesteading is tough and living on this parched land during a drought can be brutal It s particularly hard for Nora whose husband is missing and then her two sons as she tries to keep her home while caring for her young son Toby who sees a beast and her husband s niece who holds seances Nora is so thirsty and the writing is so spectacular so was I because I felt as if I was there There is death here and whether or not there are ghosts here is a uestion that the reader will have to reconcile for themselves Is his lost brother Hobb a ghost or does Lurie just imagine Hobb s want that makes him steal Is Evelyn Nora s daughter who died as a baby and has grown beside Nora through the years an apparition or is Nora s imagining her as a way of dealing with her grief and the secret she holds I know this might sound eerie but for me it wasn t I can t forget to mention Lurie s camel Burke who is his best friend and confidante Camels in the west So of course this had me searching to find out if this was true and it was There was a United States Camel Corp an army experiment to use camels as pack animals s slow going at times and it took a while for the two narratives to connect but it was worth the wait to get to that moment where a sip of water meant everything in this time of desolation and despair Beautifully written and highly recommended I won t hesitate to read Tea Obreht s next bookI received an advanced copy of this book from Random House through NetGalley
