Desert Rain loved her husband Arm Bow so deeply that when he died saving the life of a child her grief overwhelmed her to the edge of oblivion. Desert Rain considered ways to join her beloved in the next life. She slips out of her village knowing how unsafe the wilderness is with feral two legged animals protected by blue coated beasts, but she is on a mission to find a way to rejoin Arm Bow.
In the woods Desert Rain encounters the legendary Sprit Walker when he rescues her from some nasty trappers. He keeps her safe as he escorts her back to her people. Once with her tribe Spirit Walker begins to court Desert Rain.
The warm romance between the lead couple takes a back seat to the powerfully vivid descriptions of early eighteenth century western America. However, the detail does slow down the plot, but on the other hand provides readers with a rare look at a bygone era. Though advertised as a romance, SpiritWalker's novel is a fabulous historical novel with some romantic elements that spice up the story line. DESERT RAIN will provide pleasure for those readers who prefer a very deep look at the American heritage through a close up perspective on an Indian culture.
