Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Fleeing his plush decaying world and a marriage gone stale, Drake Cavanaugh is badly injured while staging his own death. Found unconscious, he is carried to the tiny Hispanic village of Descano, high and remote in the mountains of New Mexico. Here, in this 'forgotten pocket of God's overalls,' begins his cure-physical, metaphysical, and intellectual. Here he becomes increasingly part of a strange world of saints and witches and ancient gods, of murder, mysticism, and miracles. And from here he eventually returns with a truth that is not what he sought.

About Dorothy Cave

See more books from this Author
Dorothy Cave spent much of her childhood exploring with her geologist father the isolated villages and mountains of northern New Mexico, a practice she continues today. Although her formal education was at Agnes Scott College and the Universities of Colorado and Wyoming, she feels her true education has come from these remote but rapidly vanishing hamlets and pueblos and from the soil-rooted wisdom of those who live in them. Cave has traveled widely, danced with the Atlanta Ballet, acted, and taught. She is the author of two histories: BEYOND COURAGE, which won the New Mexico Presswomen's Zia Award, and FOUR TRAILS TO VALOR. Her first novel, MOUNTAINS OF THE BLUE STONE, was also published by Sunstone Press.
