Summary
Ten years after the Seventh Cavalry massacred more than two hundred Lakota men, women, and children at Wounded Knee, J.B. Bennett, a white rancher, and Star, a young Native American woman, are murdered in a remote meadow on J.B.'s land. The deaths bring together the scattered members of the Bennett family: J.B.'s cunning and hard father, Drum; his estranged wife, Dulcinea; and his teenage sons, Cullen and Hayward. As the mystery of these twin deaths unfolds, the history of the dysfunctional Bennetts and their damning secrets is revealed, exposing the conflicted heart of a nation caught between past and future

Summary
A decade after the Wounded Knee Massacre, when the U.S. 7th Cavalry regiment gunned down over 200 Lakota, white rancher J.B. Bennett and Sioux woman Star are found dead on Bennett's land. As Bennett's estranged wife, Dulcinea, returns to the ranch and gathers the remaining family members, Star's sister, Rose, vows to find Star's killer and avenge her death. Set in the Nebraska Sandhills at the dawn of the 20th century, The Bones of Paradise is a haunting multi-generational family saga that explores a tragedy with deep historical roots through the eyes of flawed and fully fleshed-out characters. -- Description by Gillian Speace
