A NovelLarge Print - 2000
Meet Rose Devonic, a wily, ferociously determined twenty-nine-year-old woman. In the tiny mountain town of Queduro, New Mexico, she makes her living selling traditional embroidery. But Rose has no home or family. In winter she sleeps in a mostly abandoned motel, and in summer she lives out of her car. A tragedy in her past, which is a constant reminder to her neighbors of their complicity, has made her an outcast. This is the enthralling story of Rose's battle to win the hearts and minds of her lifelong neighbors -- or, at least, a little respect in place of their brutal indifference.
