On a cold spring morning in 1932, two children, Karl and Mary Adare, leap from a boxcar. Orphaned in a most peculiar way, Karl and Mary have come to Argus, in the heart of rural North Dakota, to seek refuge with their aunt Fritzie, who runs a butcher shop with her husband Pete. So begins this exhilarating tale, spanning some forty years, and brimming with unforgettable characters: ordinary Mary, who causes a miracle; seductive, restless Karl, who lacks his sister's gift for survival; Sita, their lovely, ambitious, disturbed cousin; Wallace Pfef, a town leader who bears a lonely secret; Celestine James, Mary's life-long friend; and Celestine's fearless, wild daughter Dot - the Beet Queen.
