This is a story of a kiss--a simple kiss. . . and a boy. . . and a girl.

It's the Great Depression, but you would barely know it in Dam Town. The building of the great Carnee Dam has brought money, men, and mischief into an otherwise seemingly quiet desert community.

Ahanu is an outcast, born into a culture that despises him. He is Native American, of the land, a free spirit. If he wasn't in love with a girl that was already taken, maybe he could spend his days in the forest just as he pleases, but life isn't that simple.

Coreen is on a path to nowhere, dating the typical boy, and doing as her father always asks, or that's how it appears. On one moonlit night, her fate becomes entwined in an old curse unlocked by the boy of her dreams--true love--Ahanu.

This curse is old and it will have its way, it will do its damage.

 It started as your typical love story but the story was really original and refreshing. Other than that it was one of the books that took me a very long time to read it. I just can't get into it also there was writing mistakes. That's the problem of self publishing. Proofreading was needed and I don't want to ruin it for any body but it seemed kind of missing at the end it just ended with almost no consequences like it was misssing a chapter or five.. The story just started so at the first 30 pages I had a hard time recognizing the characters there was no background info actually no info at all about the characters wich made it hard to understand after all a book needs to touch our imagination.
