- WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Summer 2021 – Best Literary Fiction
- TOP 5 FINALIST: The Kindle Book Review 2021 – Best Literary Fiction
“Given the sheer volume of literature produced each year, it can sometimes be hard to find true works of such striking excellence as this tiny gem of a book... The voices that spring out of every page seem to come from the mist of time and the furthest reaches of the human experience... The book has some of the most creative and fully fleshed-out characters in modern fiction.” ~ US Review of Books, RECOMMENDED
Amidst the beauty of the Wenatchee Valley at the feet of the Cascade Mountains, apple orchardist Claire Courtney struggles to make a living.
When strange and ancient artifacts are discovered beneath her land, Claire wonders whether the ensuing archaeological dig will save her, or be the final blow in her struggle to hang onto her home and livelihood. To make matters worse, conflict between the archaeologists on the dig—Joe Running from the west, and Spencer Grant from the east—threatens the entire project.
This multicultural novel brings together Native Americans, Latinos, and migrant workers from the American South to grapple over ownership of what lies beneath the earth.
“Fink has impressive command over the many swirling elements of her well-plotted novel... The characterizations are strong, but the author has the ability to make the unique setting as important as the people. Archaeology and murder mix in this smart, picturesque novel that’s steeped in local culture.” ~ Kirkus Reviews (Our Verdict: GET IT)

The story of the Wenatchee Valley is an epic one and Teri captures the sweep of history through this small town portrait using mystery, suspense, and romance. Her respect for all sides of this crisis are both inspiring and illuminating. Like all good authors, Teri has made herself an expert on a wide range of topics including operating a fruit orchard, examining a cadaver, carbon dating a bone, selling illegal drugs, and the natural history of the region. I loved learning so much in one book. And she made me miss the irresistible landscape of an agricultural valley.
I loved the swift but engaging pace of this novel and the attention paid to each character, large and small. Teri can make you cringe at the blatant racist cruelty of a small town sheriff, shudder at the avarice and manipulation of the greedy, and smile at the recognition of both Joe and Claire's search for home.
Read it...you will LOVE it. (less)
There is so much excellence in this writing - the imagery, the characters and the personalities, the attention to detail. You'll feel transported, I guarantee it.
I recommend this book highly!
