Rick and Susan Dawson; adopted sister to Dr. Todd Dawson and Jill, director of Peruvian orphanage; adopted into long-line of well-known missionary forebears; pressured to put aside “obsession” with the fate of Olivia Thornton who disappeared into the vast reaches of the current Navajo Rez in 1906; expected to assume rightful legacy of global family mission outpost in either Peru, Sudan, or Papua New Guinea

Adam’s First Impression of Erin—brainy with luminous glow of a woman who’d spent life in moisture-rich humidity of South unlike women of his tribe on bone dry Navajo Rez; ticked and baffled she can’t remember his name—”What female didn’t remember his name?”; “Nothing to write home about”—an impression that soon changes.
