Prairie Nocturneis the epic saga of two former lovers sired in the pages of Ivan Doigs acclaimed Montana Trilogy. Susan Duff -- the bossy, indomitable schoolgirl with a silver voice fromDancing at the Rascal Fair--has reached middle age alone, teaching voice lessons to the progeny of Helenas high society. Wesley Williamson, young married heir to the Double W cattle empire, has been forced out of a political career as a result of his affair with Susan having become known. Years later, Wes and Susan have reunited to share in an extraordinary goal: launching the singing career of Monty Rathbun--a man on the wrong side of the racial divide. In this triumph of sure-footed storytelling, motives and fates dangerously entangle.Set in Montana, France, Scotland, and New York during the Harlem Renaissance,Prairie Nocturneis a deeply longitudinal novel that raises everlasting questions of allegiance, the grip of the past, and the cost of passion.
