In 1935, Eva Fortier witnesses her grandfather’s murder and flees New York for her safety. An elusive killer stalks Eva, even after she seeks refuge in New Mexico’s high desert country. Navajo doctor Tahoma Benally, has his hands full caring for his people’s medical needs. He certainly doesn’t have time to fall in love. But when his father asks for help in protecting an old friend’s daughter, Tahoma obliges his father’s request.  In the process he finds himself drawn to the woman he’s promise to protect.
DiAnn Mills, author of Under a Desert Sky, has more than 50 books that have sold more than 1.5 million copies. Her books have won five ACFW Carol Awards, one Christy Award, and three Inspirational Reader’s Choice Awards.  Two other books worth mentioning are: A Woman Named Sage and In Pursuit of Justice. Mills and her husband live in Texas.
DiAnn Mills has a way of combining adventure with characters so real you feel you might like to sit down and chat with them. In Under a Desert Sky, set in Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, Mills’ has captured the character and thought of the Dine,  the Navajo people. This was my first look at Mills’ books, but after reading Under a Desert Sky, I went in search of other books by this author. I haven’t been disappointed.  I recommend it.
