About One for the Blackbird, One for the Crow

Hardcover: 496 Pages
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing (October 8, 2019)
From the bestselling author of The Ragged Edge of Night comes a powerful and poetic novel of survival and sacrifice on the American frontier.
Wyoming, 1876. For as long as they have lived on the frontier, the Bemis and Webber families have relied on each other. With no other settlers for miles, it is a matter of survival. But when Ernest Bemis finds his wife, Cora, in a compromising situation with their neighbor, he doesn’t think of survival. In one impulsive moment, a man is dead, Ernest is off to prison, and the women left behind are divided by rage and remorse.
Losing her husband to Cora’s indiscretion is another hardship for stoic Nettie Mae. But as a brutal Wyoming winter bears down, Cora and Nettie Mae have no choice but to come together as one family—to share the duties of working the land and raising their children. There’s Nettie Mae’s son, Clyde—no longer a boy, but not yet a man—who must navigate the road to adulthood without a father to guide him, and Cora’s daughter, Beulah, who is as wild and untamable as her prairie home.
Bound by the uncommon threads in their lives and the challenges that lie ahead, Cora and Nettie Mae begin to forge an unexpected sisterhood. But when a love blossoms between Clyde and Beulah, bonds are once again tested, and these two resilient women must finally decide whether they can learn to trust each other—or else risk losing everything they hold dear.

Review: One murder and two families that are affected by it. Set in the 1870s in Wyoming this is a story of struggles that are the result of one infidelity.

These two families shouldn't be friends. Both are dealing with regrets and rage and through a winter where they are forced to be together more than they would want to, their children fall in love.

This is a story of how two families found healing and forgiveness through love.

It was a beautiful story that will take you to the prarie as America is growing bigger. This book drew me in from the start, and I found I couldn't put it down

I'm not normally a historical fiction fan, but I'm always a sucker for the late 1800s because it seems like it would have been such a difficult time to live in general, but then to add all of this into the mix? It sounds like a story I would really enjoy. Thank you for being on this tour! Sara @ TLC Book Tours
