Melanie Hoffert longs for her rural North Dakotan home, with its grain trucks and empty main streets, but like many, she followed the out-migration pattern to a more urban life. She returns home during harvest to confront the silences that have kept her at an arm's length from her childhood community. In this evocative memoir Hoffert offers a deeply personal and poignant meditation on land and community, taking readers on a journey of self-acceptance and reconciliation.
