Witnessing these alarming developments is Cedar Hawk Songmaker, who is pregnant and learning how valuable she may be to those who have assumed power in the United States.She begins her story – in diary entries addressed to her unborn child – as she reconnects with her birth mother, an Ojibwe gas station owner on a nearby reservation.Cedar is the adopted daughter of a liberal white couple in Minneapolis. Her growing appreciation of older women, who help her on an increasingly perilous journey, becomes one of many themes for Erdrich to explore.Known for her fluid novels of families, reservation life and Catholic faith, Erdrich is new to speculative fiction.
