Jude s book is a love triangle with twists and turns throughout I love her desert descriptions I might as well be in a time machine viewing my home state as it was in the 1900 s It was a wonderful journey I only wish I can write prose as well as she does one day Equally as enthralling as the first in the series Want This is an intriguing look into Tucson, Arizona s past circa 1904 through the eyes of sixteen year old Jamie Jones, son of Welsh immigrant Evan Jones and his beloved Mexican curandera wife, Reyna Jamie must deal with prejudice and his own attraction to Iris Crawford, an Anglo woman who has a hi
