What Readers are Saying
New York Times bestselling author
"This engrossing novel gives us a glimpse into two subjects rarely found together: the settling of the Dakotas by first generation Americans, and the tinsmith trade on the frontier, before boundaries closed in. A trip back to a wilder but also more innocent time. It is reminiscent of Ingmar Bergman's epic 1971 and 1972 films: "The Emigrants" and "The New Land."
"Sara Dahmen has done something most writers can only hope for. She's created a character whose inner strength, her unyielding sense of honor, just might be her undoing. Widow is a breathtaking journey through the interior landscape of a woman whose head has accepted her fate, but whose heart and quiet passions have other ideas."
internationally recognized playwright, actor, and novelist
Sara Dahmen has a sharp eye for the perils and joys of frontier life, and a passion for tinsmithing that feels totally authentic. Add to that the slow burn of a romantic plot with a heroine determined to choose her own future in a man's world and you have the recipe for a fine night by a winter's fire."
