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. Woody's 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
daughter's upcoming wedding.
Cummins's complex and fascinating characters shine through in a
gripping read that is radiant with heartache and humor and the
possibility of redemption.
