The writing and story in this novel drew me in from the first paragraph. After giving her daughters to Social Services while she goes to rehab, a Native American mom disappears. This books is about those daughters and the absence of their mother. The story is character driven. The pacing is steady, like the drumming at a pow wow.
At times it's difficult to take in all that happens to the children. This is the foster care system at its worst. And, it's also difficult to understand why no one in authority seems to care that their mother is missing - just one more addicted Indian gone.
The cover art work is evocative of the girls names with it's dark blue rain drops.
I will definitely be looking for more of this author's work.
