Lin Enger’s second tale moves Homer’s ODYSSEY to the High Divide, the wilderness area between the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers, creating an epic that is part historical novel and part Western. Patrick Lawlor narrates with a skilled delivery, letting us come to know Ulysses Pope, his family, and the dark secrets that send him on an odyssey to find redemption, forgiveness, and home. His delivery complements Enger’s beautiful descriptions, which evoke the harsh beauty of a landscape the author obviously knows intimately. He gives voice to the soul-tortured Ulysses; his proud and steadfast wife, Eli; the son who quickly becomes a man; and the sickly Danny, who gains health and strength in the quest to reunite the family.
