Ann and Wade have carved out a life for themselves from a rugged landscape in northern "Idaho," where they are bound together by more than love. With her husband’s memory fading, Ann attempts to piece together the truth of what happened to Wade’s first wife, Jenny, and to their daughters. In a story written in exquisite prose and told from multiple perspectives, including Ann, Wade, and Jenny, now in prison, we gradually learn of the mysterious and shocking act that fractured Wade and Jenny's lives, of the love and compassion that brought Ann and Wade together, and of the memories that reverberate through the lives of every character in "Idaho."

Please contact Kristie Kirkpatrick at (509) 397-4366 or kirkpatr@colfax.com to RSVP for the lunch at the Colfax event with any questions.
