LaRose by Louise Erdrich

I LOVE LOUISE ERDRICH! This is the story of a man (Landreault) who accidently kills 6 year old Dusty, his best friend’s son. Landreault and his wife (she is reluctant) give their youngest son (LaRose) to Peter and Nola to attone for their lost boy. The story is about how each family copes with grief, loss and the ties that bind these modern-day Ojibway people – there are several sub-plots and equally interesting characters in the book. I loved them all!
