I really enjoyed 'A River Too Deep', and it's subsequent sequel 'Light Bird's Song', and I have reread it several times since my first reading of it. I opted for the Kindle version, and I do have to admit that it did take a while for the story to get going. I found the beginning a bit too tedious and a little too much detail. The story didn't get going till after about 19% through but once the flow picked up, I started to connect with the 2 main characters, Alcy (later Eyes Like Water) and Preying Eagle. Unlike another reviewer who didn't care for what she referred to as the 'religious' tone of the story, I for my part loved the scriptural references thrown in, which made for a refreshing read. The author took the time to give each of her characters a depth that is often missing in stories within this genre. I loved all the characters, and the story really came alive for me, lingering in my being long after I finished it.
I highly recommend and also recommend 'Light Bird's Song' which follows the story of Alcy's daughter, Light Bird.
