Colorado, January 1977. Eighty-year-old Edith Goodnough lies in a
hospital bed, IV taped to the back of her hand, police officer at
her door. She is charged with murder. The clues: a sack of chicken
feed slit with a knife, a milky-eyed dog tied outdoors one cold
afternoon. The motives: the brutal business of farming and a family
code of ethics as unforgiving as the winter prairie itself.
In his critically acclaimed first novel, Kent Haruf delivers the
sweeping tale of a woman of the American High Plains, as told by
her neighbor, Sanders Roscoe. As Roscoe shares what he knows,
Edith''s tragedies unfold: a childhood of pre-dawn chores, a
mother''s death, a violence that leaves a father dependent on his
children, forever enraged. Here is the story of a woman who
sacrifices her happiness in the name of family--and then, in one
gesture, reclaims her freedom. Breathtaking, determinedly truthful,
The Tie That Binds is a powerfully eloquent
tribute to the arduous demands of rural America, and of the
tenacity of the human spirit.
