Synopsis: High Desert Angel is the third book in the Rosalie Evans, Bookseller series, following The Driftwood Diaries and Under a Klondike Sky. Rosalie's new discovery is an old photo album which she returns to owner Ivy Reese in Fort Rock, Oregon. The story behind a photo of two young women reveals years of hope, desperation, betrayal and everlasting love. Beginning in 1937, beaten down by drought and the Great Depression, seventeen-year-old Ivy Reese dreams of leaving her family's remote ranch. Ivy's widowed mother is determined to hang onto the ranch to keep it in the family. A shameful betrayal eventually leads to Ivy's escape to a life of promise; however, when World War II erupts, she is caught far from home, trapped in the killing fields of the Pacific. It seems unlikely that Ivy will survive to rejoin her lover, but she soon discovers that she is as stubborn and strong as her mother.
