Baptism for the Dead

A Mormon woman in a secluded Idaho town casts aside her duties to church and family to follow a wandering artist through the Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains. 

Lyrical and hypnotic, Baptism for the Dead is an unflinching examination of faith and its lack; of love, obligation, and the transformative power of art. A paean to the landscape and culture of the American West, from the author of Tidewater

Praise for Tidewater

A sweeping story, incredbly detailed… A raw but honest depiction of this fascinating woman. 
– Historical Novel Review 

Hawker vividly captures the beauty and tragedy of the first contact [between] European and Native American cultures. 
– Michael Wallace, author of The Righteous
