In this sequel to Jade: Outlaw, Jade, a rough man of the old West, molded by a tragic past, has fallen for Rain, a woman raised by Indians, a symbol of all that he hates and all that he is. Now these two outcasts, struggling to build their own relationship, face a West that is changing.
"Esther and the Genius" is the compelling story of the slow and tragic breakdown and dissolution of a prominent family. The life of Dr. Jordan Hartman, a successful but volatile professor, turns upside down with a call from his wife, Esther. Hartman is at the peak of his career; he has helped build the medical school into an internationally recognized research and treatment center.
This writer warns us she is a woman like a "Mexican electric fence." And yet between the sheets or between the murmur of the rolling pin, we are trusted to overhear confidences between intimates. It is on the white sheets of this book that a woman's most private confessions are transformed from dirty laundry to poetry luminescent as linen on the line.
