The Momentum of Red :"
[a Novel] /"Book - 2004"
The Momentum of Red tells the gripping story of the loyalty and selfless love that can exist between father and daughter. When his wife Mary dies in childbirth, it's up to Randy, a truck driver in his fifties, to raise his daughter Mary. As the little girl grows up, he struggles to let her lead her own life. When Mary meets and moves in with a dangerously volatile man, the ties that bind parent to child are tested again. Monica Kidd depicts this father-daughter relationship with poetic power, probing her characters' inner lives and the grim forces they face. Working in the tradition of writers such as Barbara Kingsolver and Sharon Butala, Kidd offers resonant descriptions of the western landscape, and a beautifully nuanced sense of the ways in which the land mirrors the emotional lives of her characters.
