The Beet QueenBook - 1986
From the release of her first novel, Love Medicine, winner of the National Book Critics Award for fiction, Louise Erdrich's writing has enthralled and enchanted critics and the public alike. Her work has been called "remarkable and luminous" by the New York Times and "marvelously inventive" by the Wall Street Journal, while the Philadelphia Inquirer raves, "Few modern writers can equal Louise Erdrich for sheer stylistic brilliance". and the Los Angeles Times says, "Her prose spins and sparkles, and dances right on the heart when it has to". A writer of power and effortless grace, she brings the people, cultures, and simple rugged beauty of North Dakota vividly to life. This cherished series, currently including Love Medicine, The Bingo Palace, The Beet Queen, and Tracks, reflects shared landscapes, themes, and unforgettable characters.
From the critics
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Near the opening, the mother of three children abandons them, and a man steals her infant to raise it as his own. May trigger those who have been placed for adoption
Sexual Content: some sex: all consensual, mostly heterosexual, all outside of marriage.
Violence: very little, however the main character is a butcher so if you're an animal lover this may not be the book for you
