Turning conventional wisdom on its head, Washington socialite Alessandra O'Quinn and her lover, Indian shaman Manuel Mondragon, defy time and space and politics and families to come together in the sweeping canvas of the 1920's New Mexico outpost of Taos. But can they defy Destiny to stay together?
This tempo molto largo historical follows Alessandra O'Quinn, who has been exiled to Taos to either recover from tuberculosis or die. Manuel Mandragon, battles for her health and her love. She in turn battles the Bureau of Indian Affairs for the Taos Indians' right to their sacred Blue Lake - and battles her father and her husband and brother for her right to autonomy.
What would have made Indian Affairs better?
A different narrator is badly needed. This sounds like a text book being read.
Would you recommend Indian Affairs to your friends? Why or why not?
I would recommend the book to some of my friends but not the audio book.
Would you be willing to try another one of Steven Cooper’s performances?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I chose this book because of the Native American side. I liked the informaiton about the culture differences.
Any additional comments?
This book is mediocre. I don't regret listening to it but the performance was atrocious.
