Overview

"A Time of Change" is a perfect example of Aimee and David Thurlos's ability to combine passion with tension as they introduce readers to Josephine Buck and other employees at a New Mexico trading post. When The Outpost's owner dies, Josephine, a young Navajo woman, is shocked to discover that Tom Stuart, whom she thought of as a surrogate father, has left her the business.

Ben Stuart and his dad had had problems, but military service changed Ben for the better and put the two men back in each other's lives. His father's sudden death ends any possibility of a true reconciliation and leaves Ben fuming at being disinherited.

Suspecting that Jo had an affair with his father, Ben is determined to get control of the trading post. Jo's "hataalii" training shows her that Ben is wounded in both body and soul, and she becomes determined to help him.

As Jo and Ben move toward a deeper understanding of each other, they learn that Tom Stuart was murdered and that the trading post at the center of their lives holds many secrets.

The Thurlos (Black Thunder) are unlikely to please either romance or suspense readers with this pedestrian endeavor. Josephine “Jo" Buck, an apprentice medicine woman in the Diné (Navajo) community of Farmington, N.M., values her relationship with her employer and father figure, Tom Stuart. When Tom is murdered in his home, Jo mourns him while trying to protect herself and the other Outpost staff from anonymous threats, armed men and robbery, and loss of business and revenue. Tom's son, Sgt. Ben Stuart, returns on military emergency leave to sort out the estate. This is further complicated by his past relationship with Jo, especially since Tom willed the Outpost to her. Some insights into the Diné culture and interesting supporting characters fail to enrich the book beyond its by-the-numbers romance and cardboard villains. (Apr.)
