Filaree

Description

Leaving Texas in 1910 for greener pastures in Arizona gives the woman at the center of this gritty novel plenty to think about. The book traces her observations on ranching, family, and isolation as she moves from her third decade into old age. Passing passions and fulfilled longings rarely compensate for the drudgery and loneliness. Noble’s heroine finds succor among other women at the scattered social gatherings where food and drink suspend tomorrow’s barren promises.
