2017 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Award Finalist for Historical Fiction

On a southern Nebraska prairie in 1919, in small-town Darkwater Creek, an abandoned housemaid with vaudeville memories, a railroad magnate’s neglected son, and a runaway Pawnee boy come of age where money is power, the right name brings privilege, and the color of your skin can make you disappear.

Witnesses to criminal tragedy, Margaret Rose, Jack and Kuruk gather in their riverside treehouse for courage. Their love and loyalty are strong, but will the town’s corruption divide them?

Book One of the River Saga, Seven Kinds of Rain revives three unwanted children’s voices, a tall-grass prairie scarred by railroad tracks, the mythic frontier’s fading heartbeat, and the violence that stole the West.

About the Author

For K. Lyn Wurth, the Great Plains and West, where she was born and has lived her entire life, are places in history and dimensions of imagination. This vast region holds the aspirations and failures of the American experience, and brims with stories yet to be told.

Supporting her stories with careful research, she combines fictional characters with real places and events. Her stories explore some of the West's deepest struggles, transgressions, conflicts and meanings. With a special concern for the dispossessed, she reflects compassion for every character. Yet, she never flinches from the violence committed in the name of human progress, and the ongoing devastation of injustice.

The land, water and sky figure large in her fiction, as they do in the West. Her tales of the Great Plains and West often resound with ancestral voices and legends from the land's first, Native nations.

K. Lyn Wurth lives in rural Northwestern Iowa with her husband, David. She is an active, supporting member of Women Writing the West.
