For a description of the novel, which is about a young Native American woman, go here.
Here’s what Roxana Robinson has to say about the book:
In Red Weather, Janet McAdams’ lovely, lyrical first novel, her young Native American protagonist, Neva, travels to a small Central American country, in the hopes of learning what she needs to know about her family. Neva’s story evolves slowly, through a mosaic of beautifully rendered moments set against the somber backdrop of revolution. McAdams writes exquisite, crystalline prose, and Neva’s story is both moving and elegiac.
