The Round House by Louise Erdrich

The Round House

I know it has been a while for new books for book club so I apologize! Everyones schedules have been crazy with Hurricane Sandy, the holidays and life in general. This months book is The Round House. I am excited to read
The Round House because it seems almost Girl Gone-esque. If it is anything like that I am super excited. Here is a little description of this book: “One Sunday in the spring of 1988, a woman living on a reservation in North Dakota is attacked. The details of the crime are slow to surface as Geraldine Coutts is traumatized and reluctant to relive or reveal what happened, either to the police or to her husband, Bazil, and thirteen-year-old son, Joe. In one day, Joe’s life is irrevocably transformed. He tries to heal his mother, but she will not leave her bed and slips into an abyss of solitude. Increasingly alone, Joe finds himself thrust prematurely into an adult world for which he is ill prepared.
While his father, who is a tribal judge, endeavors to wrest justice from a situation that defies his efforts, Joe becomes frustrated with the official investigation and sets out with his trusted friends, Cappy, Zack, and Angus, to get some answers of his own. Their quest takes them first to the Round House, a sacred space and place of worship for the Ojibwe. And this is only the beginning.”
I am excited for this one! Our last book I couldnt get into butThe Round House definitely seems like something I can really get into!
