A brutal attack leaves Dove, a Nimiipuu maiden, pregnant and alone. Her tribe refuses to hear the truth--that the White man who took her body also plans to take their land. She walks into the lake to end both her life and her despair. Wewukiye, the lake spirit, uses his human form to save Dove from drowning. Learning the reason she longs to end her mortal existence, he vows to care for her until she gives birth. Together, they will restore her place in her tribe and prove the White man is not the Nimiipuu's friend. But to help her he must keep his spirit identity hidden. As Dove and Wewukiye pursue their quest for justice, Dove reveals spiritual abilities yet unknown in her people, ensnaring Wewukiye's respect and awe. But can love between a mortal and a spirit grow without consequences?
