The beet queen

" ... a vibrant tale of abandonment and sexual obsession, jealousy and unstinting love. On a spring morning in 1932, young Karl and Mary Adare arrive by boxcar in Argus, North Dakota. Orphaned in a most peculiar way, Karl and Mary look for refuge to their mother's sister Fritzie, who, with husband Pete, runs a butcher shop. So begins an exhilarating forty-year saga brimming with unforgettable characters: ordinary Mary, who causes a miracle; seductive Karl, who lacks Mary's gift for survival; Sita, their lovely, disturbed, ambitious cousin; Wallace Pfef, a town leader bearing a lonely secret; Celestine James, a mixed-blood Chippewa, and her daughter, Dot. Theirs is a story grounded in the tenacity of relationships, the magic of natural events, and the unending mystery of the human condition."--Back cover.
