Moskowitz’s novel is written with the kind of rich details and realistic insights that insiders would know. A compelling and candid tale about starting over in a beguiling environment. --Kirkus Reviews
In 2002, Celeste is reeling from her disastrous marriage. Seeking refuge in the remote hills of Northern California, she unwittingly immerses herself and her daughters in the booming illicit marijuana-growing culture of Humboldt County. She's seduced by the wild edge of the continent and the financial freedom of the industry, until a frenzy of violence, secrets and silence grip the mountain community.
