Set on the Minnesota prairies in 1987, during a drought season that is not helping the demise of the family farms, the story features two intertwining narrators: a father searching for answers after his son commits a heinous murder, and a pastor’s wife who has returned to the town for mysterious reasons of her own. A penetrating look at small-town America, reminiscent of Russell Banks’ Sweet Hereafter or Affliction, driven by a powerful murder mystery, Little Wolves is a page-turning literary triumph.
“A haunting, complex story…Hillary Huber’s narration is as sparse as the desolate German farming community where the events take place. She builds the suspense, slowly pulling away layers of secrets with a minimalist delivery. Her measured pace and unembellished narration engage the listener with this community and its mysteries.”—AudioFile
