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, getting as far as Argus, North Dakota, where he settles, building a business and a home for his family, which now includes Eva and four sons, and a singing club consisting of the best voices in town.

What happens when the Old World meets the New, in the person of Delphine Watzka, becomes one of the great adventures of Fidelis's life. Delphine meets Eva and is enchanted. She meets Fidelis, and the ground trembles. These momentous encounters will determine the course of Delphine's life, and the trajectory of this brilliant new novel in which Louise Erdrich creates a world filled with memorable characters who grapple with the worst and best of human nature.

    " Louise Erdrich has written an historical, beautifull and often sad story that takes place from WWI to WWII. Her characters are strong and believable. I loved that the story had a few twists and turns, but especially that suprise ending. "

    " I find Erdrich variable. There are those books that seem to have been just one more knocked off much like one I've previously read and then there are the greats. This book is my favorite Erdrich and one of my very books period. The writing is joy in itself, the characters fully formed -their lives entwined, the times they depict fully illuminatedand the story fascinating. This is one of those books that one does not want to end. "
