Description

In The Tie That Binds, his critically acclaimed first novel, Kent Haruf delivers the sweeping tale of eighty-year-old Edith Goodnough. Narrated by her neighbour, Edith’s tragedies unfold: a tough childhood, a mother’s death, a violence that leaves a father dependent on his children, forever enraged. She is a woman who sacrifices everything in the name of family – until she is forced to reclaim her freedom in one dramatic and unexpected gesture.

Breathtaking and truthful, The Tie That Binds is a powerful tribute to the demands of rural life, and to the tenacity of the human spirit.
