The story begins as an ambulance pulls away from the butcher's shop, taking Mick to the hospital after he has carelessly hacked off a finger while preparing John's order. John's wife, Marguerite, and two young children are forced to live with his uncle until he can find work. Marguerite has a brief affair, an escape from the poverty and boredom of day-to-day life - and John, attempting to make amends for Mick's lost finger, is chased down by the butcher's buddies.

In K. M. Vittetoe's breakout novel, Luisa copes with single motherhood when tragedy strikes. Luisa strives to reform her life while dealing with the secrets and addictions of her parents' past. Circumstances create a unique bond between Luisa and Warren, an older, reclusive neighbor. This episodic novel weaves three stories together: Luisa's tragic present, Warren's abusive past, and the heart-wrenching love story of Luisa's parents, Reeve, a Texas rancher's daughter, and Aurelio, a Mexican immigrant. Dreams, broken and fulfilled, connect the characters on a journey that begins in Denver and leads them toward the Mexican border.
