This is one of the best books I have read in the last months. The subtitle ' A Love Story ' is misleading, since it is not some shallow romance novel. The love story in the book between Cody and Rose is more a framework for the social setting of a small town in post-war America with all its prejudice and bigotry and suspicion towards the local Indian tribes. Unfortunately the prejudice goes both ways and the Indians have their prejudices as well. It is a sad story, but well written. The language and poetry of Swain Wolfe's writing sweeps you away and takes you directly to the heart of the human soul. A really great book and absolute must-read.

Lyrical and hypnotic prose is Swain Wolfe's style. This is a sweet and mythical story.
