Summary
"A riveting, atmospheric dream of a novel." --Dominic Smith, author of The Last Painting of Sara de Vos Set in the hardscrabble landscape of early 1900s Oklahoma, but timeless in its sensibility, Prairie Fever traces the dynamic between two sisters: the pragmatic Lorena and the chimerical Elise. Their connection to each other supersedes all else, until the arrival of a schoolteacher sunders the sisters' relationship as they both begin to fall for him. With poetic intensity and the deadpan humor of Paulette Jiles and Charles Portis, Parker reminds us of how our choices are often driven by our passions. Expansive and intimate, Prairie Fever tells the story of characters tested as much by life on the prairie as they are by their own churning hearts
Summary
Set in the prairie town of Lone Wolf, Oklahoma, in the early 1900s, two sisters find their special bond tested when they both fall for a newly-arrived teacher in the town?s one-room schoolhouse
