Críticas:

"This book does what my favorite books always do: grab the reader with tautness and fierce intelligence, so that even the quiet drama of it gets pulled into the page-turning qualities of the narrative. I could say, Read this book. Instead I ll say, Start this book. You won t stop reading until its terrific ending."
Leigh Allison Wilson, author of "Wind "and "From the Bottom Up"


"Forces of nature big water and big love come together in this literary page-turner.Amy Hassinger has woven a tale out of the very earth where the Ojibwe live. her protagonist Rachel is a lover, mother, and activist, a woman of our time on ahero's journeytoward wholeness."
Patricia Henley, author of "Hummingbird House," finalist for the National Book Award
Told with heartbreaking clarity about what it means to be a mother a complex and vulnerable human being with responsibilities to the past and the future, "After the Dam"is a story about discovering the difference between knowledge and wisdom.Amy Hassinger s lyrical prose is a joy to read.
Karen Shoemaker, author of"The Meaning of Names"
and"Night Sounds and Other Stories"
A dam built of dirt may give way to the force of water, and a marriage built on convenience may give way to the force of desire. In this compelling novel, the heroine s disruptive desire is not only for sex, that staple of human stories, but also for a home place and a purposeful life. The place she chooses has been loved and cared for by several generations of her own family, and for many more generations by the native people who call themselves Anishinaabe. How to reconcile rival claims to the same homeland? How to reconcile the needs of her infant daughter and her dutiful husband with her own need for self-fulfillment? Amy Hassinger poses the questions vividly, without pretending there are easy answers.
Scott Russell Sanders, author of"Earth Works: Selected Essays"
Intricate, delicate, lyrical, with a powerful sense of place, "After the Dam"is a generational saga that has the draw of a good mystery. It s about the desire to go back and do things differently, make different choices, take a different path. And each character s individual choice, past and present, hugely impacts the lives of the others for better or worse. Amy Hassinger has written a spellbinding book that left me wishing for more.
Patricia Lear, author of "Stardust, 7-Eleven, Route 57, and" "So Forth"
The women of two families, one Native, one White, and the piece of earth both feel they own are at the center of this lyrical and compassionate novel. A moving story about the consequences of historical amnesia and the healing power of mother love.
Carol Spindel, author of"Dancing at Halftime: Sports and the "
"Controversy Over American Indian Mascots"
"After the Dam"begins with a phone call s unexpected news, a young mother s drive through the night with her infant in tow, and then the arrival at a family farm that offers multiple hidden pasts and more than one future.With an impressive empathetic skill, Amy Hassinger guides her conflicted characters through a complex path where personal regret and longing confront and echo the moral dilemmas of our country s troubled history.This is a brave and beautifully written novel, one that offers quiet wisdom and no easy answers.
Philip Graham, author of"The Moon, Come to Earth"
Amy Hassinger s elegiac novel about the shifting, elusive nature of family and love made me feel, while reading, as if my heart were pumping inside the author s fist. By the end, I was reminded by "After the Dam" and its characters that, to borrow a metaphor from the novel, we humans make our lives from sand, and sand will always slip.
Susanna Daniel, author of "Sea Creatures"and"Stiltsville"
"After the Dam"weaves threads of connection between several generations of two families split by history s implacable seasons of growth, death, and renewal, as one generation passes onto the next the unresolved moral legacy left by the one before. Lush with description, "After the Dam"draws us beneath the surface of its characters lives into an undertow of emotional conflict that makes you feel you are immersed in the minds and hearts of people you know.It s a compelling read that s hard to put down once you have been drawn into its tide.
Richard Duggin, author of"Why Won t You Talk to Me?"
and"The Music Box Treaty"
"

Taut, beautifully written, and suspenseful, this resonant, feminist drama eschews easy answers. A page-turner of the highest caliber.

"Taut, beautifully written, and suspenseful, this resonant, feminist drama eschews easy answers. A page-turner of the highest caliber." -Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"When one person's political passion conflicts with the rest of her family's desires, tensions are inevitable.Rachel Clayborne, Michael German, and their infant daughter, Deirdre, have been living in Illinois, close to the college where Michael teaches. Rachel has been halfheartedly working on a Ph.D. in environmental science, but, since giving birth, her energy has flagged and she's begun questioning her commitment to the field. She's also depressed and angry--doubting that she's well-suited for the domesticity she's somehow fallen into. She's stewing, so when her dad phones and informs her that her grandmother, called Grand, is dying, she and Deirdre sneak off in the middle of the night and drive to the Farm, the Wisconsin home that's been in the Clayborne family for generations. Rachel doesn't leave a note about their destination--she and the child just vanish while Michael sleeps. Once in Wisconsin, she and Grand easily reconnect, and despite Grand's frailty and memory lapses, the pair are buoyed by one another. Still, tensions arise. The main issue involves Grand's plan to leave the Farm to Diane Bishop, her Native American nurse and longtime friend, in essence returning the land to the Ojibwe people who once owned it. After all, Diane argues, the Claybornes acquired the property fraudulently and restoring it is simply making things right. Grand agrees, changes her will, and sets off a battle royal within the Clayborne family. Along the way, Rachel connects with her first love, Joe Bishop, Diane's son and the caretaker of an area dam, and grapples with issues including marital fidelity, family ties, indigenous rights, and lifestyle preferences. Taut, beautifully written, and suspenseful, this resonant, feminist drama eschews easy answers. A page-turner of the highest caliber."

--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A consistently compelling and deftly crafted novel with an underlying message about the transformative power of motherhood, "After the Dam" reveals author Amy Hassinger as an impressively skilled storyteller of the first order. This is a novel that will linger in the mind and memory long after the book itself has been finished and set back upon the shelf. "After the Dam" is strongly recommended for personal reading lists and community library General Fiction collections.

Midwest Book Review

Reseña del editor:

Undone by motherhood, judged by her husband, thirty-two-year-old Rachel Clayborne flees with her baby in the middle of the night for the one place on earth that's been her refuge: her grandmother's lakehouse in northern Wisconsin. Hoping to reconnect with a former, healthier self, she instead faces a confused and dying grandmother, her ever-present nurse who seems bent on thwarting each of Rachel's desires, and a changed ex-boyfriend--her first and most passionate love. As a constant rain threatens the nearby dam, Rachel struggles to discern what's happened to the past, who she's become, and what kind of a life she will make for herself now--one that clings to ghosts or opens bravely to a wild new geography.

From the acclaimed author of Nina: Adolescence and The Priest's Madonna comes a gripping new novel that depicts the transformative power of motherhood with honesty, wit, and compassion.
