The Scent of Rain
by Anne Montgomery




Overview -

Rose Madsen will do anything to keep from being married off to one of the men in her FundamentalistMormon (FLDS) community, even endure the continued beatings and abuse of her mother. But when her mentallyhandicapped baby sister is forced to strangle the bird she loves at the behest of The Prophet, Rose frees the bird andruns away.

Adan Reyes will do anything to escape the abusive foster care system in Phoenix, even leaving his good friends and successful high school athletic career behind him. Ill-prepared for surviving the desert, Adan hits the road only to suffers a heat stroke. Found by a local handyman, he catches a glimpse of a mysterious girl--Rose--running through town, and follows her into the mountains where they are both tracked and discovered by the men of the FLDS community.

With their fates now intertwined, can Rose and Adan escape the systems locking them into lives of abuse? Will Rose be forced to marry the Prophet, a man her father's age, and be one of dozens of wives, perpetually pregnant, with no hope for an education? Will Adan be returned to the foster home where bullying and cruelty is as common as the institutional food? Is everyone they meet determined to keep them right where they belong or are some adults worthy of their trust?
