It was interesting but a little to sketchy for me, but the structure of writing was pretty nice.

In the 1800s three families, Schapen, Grellier and Freemantle worked together and helped each other as they struggled to settle Kansas farmland. 150 years later, the Freemantles are gone and Schapens and Grelliers hate each other with savage venom. Enter, Gina, a Feemantle from New York to stay in the ancestral mansion, trying to pick up the pieces of her life in the city. What follows is a crazy and sometimes heart wrenching series of events. From manic/depressive Susan Grellier and her son's death in Iraq to Wiccan Gina and her pagan rituals to a holy calf being raised by Schapens and their fundamentalist church. All comes to a frenzied head on Halloween night. No one escapes tragedy as religious fervor, ignorance and fear drive people to commit heinous acts. All of the characters in this character driven story are flawed and search for truth and meaning to their lives. A great read.
