Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0380784912, Mass Market Paperback)Kathleen Eagle enters compelling new territory in this urban-set contemporary which focuses on three people--Angela Prescott, a woman starting completely over after escaping a bad relationship; Tommy T, a street-smart 10-year-old who needs someone to believe in; and Jesse Brown Wolf, a man tormented by grief and guilt who's leading a double life. Jesse is an especially fascinating figure: a simple repairman by day who becomes a superhero at night, taking guns away from street kids ... a phantom lover who whispers words of heart's ease into Angela's ear ... a man whose underground hideaway protects him from a world that's become too painful to face. Native American characters and folklore enrich this story of redemption, which takes readers through some dark terrain, but leaves them in a place of light. A bold, thought-provoking novel that asks some tough questions, from an award-winning writer. Note the lovely Swinburne poem.

To escape her boyfriend, schoolteacher Angela Prescott moves to Minneapolis where she meets an orphaned half-Indian boy who helps her find a job as a waitress, and whom she eventually adopts. When she is beaten by hoods, the boy takes her to a man who lives in a cave in a park and only shows himself at night to hide his disfigured face. He helps her recover and the two fall in love.
