Blackwell North Amer For Sharon McCone, when one door opens, another shuts. In the midst of celebrating a joyous wedding, she gets word that her father has died. The news leads her to the rituals of death: the scattering of ashes, the sharing of grief, the sorting through a loved one's belongings. But for Sharon McCone the last of those acts leads to a discovery that will change everything ... The existence of a legal document, hinting at a family secret deliberately withheld from McCone, provokes a violent breach between McCone and her mother. It drives McCone to search for her family's roots, particularly those of her Shoshone great-grandmother. This emotionally fueled search takes her to Montana's Flathead Indian Reservation and, eventually, to a remote and sparsely populated county in northern California. There, obsessed with her own problems, she walks into a deadly fight between Indians trying to preserve their sacred lands and a high-powered resort developer.
