The round house by Louise Erdrich — In the spring of 1988, a woman living on a reservation in North Dakota is attacked. Geraldine Coutts is traumatized and reluctant to reveal what happened, either to the police or to her husband, Bazil, and thirteen-year-old son, Joe. Joe tries to heal his mother, but she will not leave her bed and slips into an abyss of solitude. While his father, who is a tribal judge, tries to wrest justice from a situation that defies his efforts, Joe 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.
