Blue skies, empty land—and enough room to hide away a horrifying secret. Or is there? Discover a haunting new vision of the American West from the award-winning author of The Changeling.

Montana in 1914. Adelaide carries a huge steamer trunk with her as she travels to Montana, always making sure it is locked. What is in the trunk is what killed her parents and will kill again if it gets out.

Yes, that is correct, this is historical fiction with some fantasy/paranormal added and it works beautifully! I loved every character in this story and can’t wait to see what comes next for this author!

She is headed to Montana to stake her claim and make it her home. She has to live out the winter and get some crops in. But hatred towards women and people of color is not new and people in the west were not a friendly group to outsiders. As she guards her shameful secret, she meets other lone women and they band together. I loved it!

If this is Mr. LaValle’s style, I am here for it. Blending historical fiction and some horror just works for me. Excellent read.
