Blood: The Color Of Cranberries
 

Authored by Pamelia Barratt

Blood: the Color of Cranberries is a sweeping chronicle of the Milton family, sophisticated Chicagoans who are forced to move to a small, northern Wisconsin peat bog in 1920, due to the sudden and unexpected death of a family member. The twisting interplay of personalities, each with their own secrets, delays the unraveling of this mysterious "accident" for forty years. Along the way, the reader is introduced to a history of cranberry cultivation in Indianhead country, as well as the life and communities of the North Woods prior to 1960.
