This ``beautifully fashioned, powerful novel,'' set in North Dakota in the early 1900s, limns Fleur Pillager, a Native American woman who is rumored to be a witch, and whose life mirrors that of crumbling Indian culture and community. ``This is a stunning story about people caught in the grip of passion and in the inexorable flow of history,'' lauded PW. $100,000 ad/promo.
