"Salt Lake City author Jeri Parker knows well the vast beauty of the American West, not least the North Fork of the Snake River. Her description of the ruinous Teton Dam Flood of 1976 is spare and harrowing, and she perfectly captures the morning-after shock of the fatal fire."

Synopsis

UNMOORED is about what we get to keep and what we don't get to keep, what we want to know and what we can't let ourselves know, what we love and what we unwittingly betray. Carving from memory the ground she will stand on, Rennie England returns to the family home in Idaho in time to see her father's body being carried out his fire-blackened bedroom window. Her journey to find out what happened will take her to his bedroom, to a candle in the room and a key in the lock, to other rooms where people fell in love, where people died. As she asks who was locked in and who was locked out, she hears in a new way the voices of her life: the father who hangs his twins, but not by the neck; the grandmother, whose light comes with cinnamon and salt; the lover, who is the one right thing and out of reach even before he is assassinated. Rennie finds healing when she returns to her grandparents' sawmill cabin in the Centennial Mountains, its paths strewn with the light of morning, the shadow of dusk, the scent of alpine daisies and Douglas fir, of grass and mint and brook.
