With a suitcase full of sausages and a master butcher’s precious set of knives, Fidelis sets out for America, getting as far as North Dakota, where he builds a business, a home for his family—which includes Eva and four sons—and a singing club consisting of the best voices in town.

When the Old World meets the New—in the person of Del-phine Watzka—the great adventure of Fidelis’s life begins. Delphine meets Eva and is enchanted; she meets Fidelis, and the ground trembles. These momentous encounters will determine the course of Delphine’s life—and the trajectory of this brilliant new novel by Louise Erdrich.
