In 1857, at a place called Mountain Meadows in southern Utah, a band of Mormons and Indians massacred 120 emigrants. Twenty years later, the slaughter was blamed on one man named John D. Lee, previously a member of Brigham Young’s inner circle. Red Water imagines Lee’s extraordinary frontier life through the eyes of three of his nineteen wives. Emma is a vigorous and capable Englishwoman who loves her husband unconditionally. Ann, a bride at thirteen years old, is an independent adventurer. Rachel is exceedingly devout and married Lee to be with her sister, his first wife. These spirited women describe their struggle to survive Utah’s punishing landscape and the poisonous rivalries within their polygamous family, led by a magnetic, industrious, and considerate husband, who was also unafraid of using his faith to justify desire and ambition. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Red Water is a tale of courage and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Khoto Wilstock embarks on a dangerous journey to learn the truth that could save his people, his home and his way of life. The Red Water has not visited his land for four generations and legend has replaced fact. Water, the life blood of the ancient Chartoc Mountains and all it's inhabitants, has mysteriously turned bitter. The spring thaw has raised the level of the majestic Crystal river to near flood stages over a month early. Trees are suddenly dieing in Middle Country and the Lotbar are unable to stop the devastation. The cry of war has plunged both Lotbar and Thomlin into terror and unstoppable destruction. Khoto believes all these events are somehow intertwined. Together with a small human, Khoto attempts the impossible. It is a powerful and complusively readable story about how a tiny, average creature can make a difference when willingness is combined with action to overcome fears.

He was trying to kill her, too... Malory Shoemaker finally feels like she's escaped her old life. Her tiny dorm room at Florida East Coast University is a substantial upgrade from the beat-up trailer she's lived in since her mom died, and though she sometimes still hears her father's whispers in her mind, she's excelling at school, making new friends, and has even attracted a handsome, enigmatic admirer. But when her new love interest begins to reveal his more unsavory appetites, Malory finds herself a hapless participant in a sick game that forces her to confront her own inner demons. As the game intensifies, so do the whispers in Malory's head. Now she must decide: accept the fate she has always believed inevitable, or risk abandonment by the only person who ever made her feel like she was worth fighting for. But how do you let love in when the only thing that feels right is pain? At times erotic, at times disturbing, and at times both at once, Red Water slithers under your skin with its dark, unflinching examination of the psychology of self-loathing and the secret, unspeakable lust for depravity that lies dormant within us all.
