The Mineral PalaceBook - 2001
Set in Depression-era Colorado, this stunning debut follows Bena Jonssen-a woman struggling with her role as a wife and mother-as she is drawn to the seamier side of Pueblo. Here she encounters a pregnant prostitute and the question of the unborn baby's paternity leads Bena to uncover not only the sexual corruption on which an entire town is founded, but also the lies that enclose her own marriage.
