Her mother is feckless, her father busy with his new family. Meeting Son, the scion of a local rancher, seems like deliverance. They marry and live as a family in his parents venerable adobe house, but it soon becomes clear that Son is a man who, as his father says, has a young heart near withered beneath the breastbone.Katherine must find her own way during a dangerous months-long drought, when everything seems to be disintegrating around her. Susan Froderbergs incantatory language--and her deep knowledge of both the complexities of a small, deeply-rooted place and the human heart--make OLD BORDER ROAD soar.
