"Bold, envisioned storytelling. A hands down pleasure to read." —Richard Wagamese
In the winter of 1989, Eva Gibson is a university student living in downtown Toronto. She's homesick and anxious to finish her education and return home to serve her Anishinaabe community. Then tragedy strikes and it becomes the Gibson family's legacy. Back on the rez, Eva's brothers and sister struggle to cope with their losses and redefine "their legacy." Some turn to ceremony; some turn to vice. All the while, they contend with a creeping sentiment of revenge.
