This event has passed
As the 12 days that make up the novel’s framework yield to their dramatic conclusion, this unforgettable family — motherless children sacrificing for one another as they can, protecting and nurturing where love is scarce — pulls itself up to face another day. A big-hearted novel about familial love and community against all odds, and a wrenching look at the lonesome, brutal and restrictive realities of rural poverty, Salvage the Bones is muscled with poetry, revelatory and real.
