Land That Moves, Land That Stands StillBook - 2003
Mattie Remmel, who loses her husband in a farm accident, discovers and confronts his hidden past, which darkens her own vision of the future. Deciding to keep their alfalfa ranch running, Mattie enlists the help of her daughter, Shelley, who's returned home from college, and hires a ranch hand, Dawn, a young woman who has a penchant for mechanics. A fourteen-year-old runaway Native American boy joins the three women, and together they forge an unlikely family, facing whatever life throws at them, from the trials of independent work to the arrival of a former lover bent on revenge. A powerful novel about the search for home, authenticity, and love, Land That Moves, Land That Stands Stillis as evocative of place as it is of the vagaries of human emotion.
