Under A Desert Sky by DiAnn Mills


When Eva Fortier’s grandfather is murdered, her attorney urges her to leave New York and take refuge in the high desert area of New Mexico. 

Leaving her life of wealth behind, Eva attempts to make sense of the tragedies in her life. Navajo David Benally has his hands full taking care of his people’s medical needs. But when his father asks him to help fulfill a vow made to Eva’s father, he has no choice but to oblige. He views Eva as a spoiled rich girl…until he sees her strength in the midst of life-threatening danger.

My take:~

DiAnn Mills’ latest historical novel, Under A Desert Sky, tackles an inter racial relationship, a murderous vendetta and the journey of a woman determined to survive against all odds.  I enjoyed the character of Tahoma immensely, a man caught between his cultural roots and the desires of his family and community and his modern education and new found faith.  DiAnn authentically addresses the hurdles Eva and Tahoma face in light of their attraction with great dialogue and internal ponderings.  Tahoma’s parents and the rough and ready Rex are great minor characters who add depth and personality to the story.  The suspense moves along at a steady pace making Under A Desert Sky a solid and engaging read.
