Reading about Eva at the beginning of the story, and then watching her grow in both courage and independence, was one of my favorite parts of the book. She grew up with every comfort imaginable and a governess who bred in her a distrust of men and other people in general. When Eva's suddenly been forced to live with strangers on a ranch out in the middle of nowhere and learn to fire a gun for protection, she's pushed to find confidence and trust in others. Her change and growth was encouraging to read. Tahoma, her at first reluctant, then willing, protector, was a pretty complex character as well. Being Indian, but embracing some of the white's culture, he was torn. His spiritual journey was very inspiring to read.
Having Under a Desert Sky focus on Eva running from a killer was neat. Almost like the nowadays witness protection program, Eva changed her name and disappeared from everyone. DiAnn's writing is, as always, expressive and bold. She wrote Eva's character in the first-person, which is a first for me with this author. But I really enjoyed it! I confess there were a few scenes or moments that I thought a bit awkward or unnatural for a character, but that is my only complaint for this fun, adventurous book that will keep you reading.
When I finished up the last few pages, I was content with how everything winded up.Read more ›

Eva Fortier is sent to Ghost Ranch to hide from the people who killed her grandfather. She has been raised as a rich socialite with all the finest things money can buy. On the ranch, she learns a new way of life that she never thought she would embrace, but she does. She meets Tahoma and falls head over heels in love, but does he return her feelings? She has a job for the first time, which she loves. She is a gifted teacher and longs to someday teach others. She also finds God at Ghost Ranch amidst her emotional turmoil and the constant threat of death dogging her heels.
This is a heartwarming romance set in the mid-1930s that covers betrayal, deception, murder, newfound faith, prejudice, love, and many other themes. The two main characters of the story show our human frailties while seeking spiritual solutions, maybe not first off just like we do sometimes they turn to others first. They realize that only God has complete control over every situation in our lives. The transformation of Eva was a wonder to behold. I look forward to reading more novels by this talented author.
