Surrounding an American Native mystery is the problems and mysteries of
two main characters. The characters were detailed enough to visualize them.
This book started slow but it really picked up where I couldn't put the book down -
Actually, I should say I couldn't put the Kindle down. Pamela
She develops a rapport with a student who she finds is being bullied and harassed but refuses to identify his tormentors. It turns out his family is being ostracized by some in the tribe as witches, and are considered responsible for deaths of children and adults in the area.
The family refuses to pursue the case, but asks the teacher to walk the child home from school whenever one of them cannot.
Every instinct she has says that something is very wrong, and that this family is being unreasonably targeted. Being an outsider she cannot get in, and having no evidence and no cooperation, she is fraught with anxiety and a sense of helplessness. She goes to everyone, tribal council, police, people in the town, but no one seems willing to investigate and stop the harassment of this family.
A fellow teacher, a native American, who had been adopted and grew up off the reservations, also says not to keep pursuing this. She is falling in love with him, but his seeming inability to share her point of view creates a barrier (she later finds out, he has reason to hold back and is concerned that interference will cause escalation).
You could see her anger develop, and her emotions were especially tied in, as the boy was about the age of the son she was forced to give u for adoption.
Events continue to escalate and it is quite a story.
This was a good mystery and a very good read.
Since the story line is available in the book description, I won't redo that information. What I will say is this is a fun read, well paced and if you buy the Kindle version, very carefully edited so that you don't need to be concerned that your enjoyment of the story will be interrupted.
Do yourself a favor, if you enjoy a good mystery and a tug a your heart human story, if you love seeing good win out over unfairness, get yourself a copy of this book and start your adventure!!
Its after the Edakee's house is burned to the ground that the truth comes out about who is behind the harassments and why. All due to what Sandy found in the ashes. This is where it gets real good and you will not want to put the book down until you finish it.
I enjoy the south west novels and this author told a good story.
A nice job in describing the pueblo and the area around it. Her introductions to the cast and their lives and beliefs are also very good.
This will be a reread down the road.
There are good and bad people in different cultures, just as there are good and bad practices.
You don't have to agree, but you can still respect the differences
I found myself captivated by the mysteries, maddened by the bigotry and stumped by the sheer ignorance (as in lack of knowledge).

The plot is a little predictable. Character development is ok.
