National book award winner Louise Erdrich has written “LaRose.” In North Dakota in 1999, Landreaux Iron accidentally shoots and kills five-year-old Dusty Ravich, the son of his neighbors. The two families have always been close. Dusty was best friends with Landreaux’s son, LaRose. Horrified Landreaux follows an ancient means of atonement. He and his wife give their son, LaRose, to the grieving Ravich family. As the years pass LaRose becomes the linchpin linking the two families.
