    G Davies Jandrey s Journey Through An Arid Land brings the people and landscape of the Arizona Mexico border to life, without treading too heavily on issues of politics or social need The background of characters from both sides of the physical border, and from both sides of its legal restraints, are convincingly woven into stories of real people a Mexican woman who longs to be with her husband an American man who longs to be with his wife those who own property, and those who don t those whose lives follow the rules of society, and those on different paths As the journey progresses, there are lands of the heart just as arid as Arizona s desert.Four women take center place in this tale, for all that it s a murder mystery where detective and suspects are men, and a social mystery where the victims are children too young to understand Wiona is bound to the present Emma speaks the past, but just might turn to see the future Belen lives in limbo and fear And Lucy opens her heart to reveal both hurt and hope.Stokey, meanwhile, patrols the border, obeys the rules, and maintains a human decency and concern The past has hurt him too, and the future seems betrayed, offering another arid land from the title another place between hurt and hope.The truth is, we all make our journeys when life s promise fails This novel reveals the common bonds between us, and the present flowers of the desert which might be seen if we open our eyes It also reveals the darkness of human cruelty and greed, the desert s danger that cannot be denied, whatever political views are espoused.Disclosure I was given a free copy, and I loved it.

    I found this book very entertaining Story starts with 3 separate stories and one wonders how they all fit together In the end it all becomes clear.
