Three generations of Cherokee women in near-contemporary Oklahoma and Texas have the lives of hard-working, rent-scrabbling women everywhere who link up with listless or ruthless men. Untethered from their spiritual heritage and wound up in an ultra-fundamentalist church, these women don't give the reader a lot to root for. There's truth here, but the overwhelming theme is futility. Until that epilogue.
If you're weighing reading "Crooked Hallelujah" or another book, you might want to go with the other book.
The narrative unfolds as a series of short stories arranged basically in chronological order. This construction allows the reader a kind of intimacy with so many different characters at different points in their lives. When Kelli Jo Ford is writing, no character is filler or window dressing - each one is their own universe.
If you like novels by Larry McMurtry, Louise Erdrich, or Tommy Orange, you'll love Crooked Hallelujah.
