Power & Light (Paperback)
Weaver's long-awaited adult novel returns to the themes of Red Earth, White Earth and Sweet Land. In 1906, an emigrant family from Norway arrives in North Dakota with dreams of owning land and "moving up in the world." Tragedy plus a crime against them by a powerful man threatens to destroy the family. An unlikely hero steps up. Jenny Haugen, seventeen, leads her siblings on a generational march toward agency, justice, and power. Power & Light, the first of a two-book saga, mirrors the hard-won success of America itself and shows Weaver at the height of his powers.
