In hunting down his sister's suspected murderer, college student Coy Lee Tuttle is forced to learn about himself, his family, his friends, his beliefs and his world -- a volatile 1960's California of poor farmworkers and union organizers. Bonnie Hearn keeps her focus on her central story while also managing to evoke vivid images of a time and place in which war and the draft loomed, strikes and violence occurred frequently, and unsettled people tried hard to make sense of it all. Huelga House is a taut, well-written mystery.
