Summary "Twelve-year-old Vonceil cannot wait for her older brother Elber to come home to the family farm in Oklahoma after serving on the front lines of World War I. But the young man who greets her at the train station is serious and responsible, not the fun-loving brother she remembers, and he doesn't have time for her anymore -- especially not after he marries his plain, boring childhood sweetheart. Soon after the wedding, glamorous, mysterious Greda arrives at the farm. She's followed Elber all the way back from Paris, and when she learns he's married another woman, she's furious. Revealing herself as a powerful salt witch, she dooms the farm by turning its only source of water, a spring, to crop-destroying salt water. Elber falls ill from the shock, so Vonceil strikes out on her own to confront Greda and life the curse. In this utterly unique graphic novel fairy tale, Vonceil travels through deserts, ghost towns, and her own family's past in her quest to set things right. The journey will change her in ways that can't be undone and teach her powerful lessons about sacrifice, love, and the importance of family." -- jacket.
