Readers have found Gerald Hickey ́s novel Crossing a Rainbow compelling and imaginative. The book chronicles a heart-rending tale of a family divided by a child ́s obsession with a past life. --"A fascinating story that held my attention from cover to cover," commented Dan Lehman of Trabuco Canyon, California. "The author approaches the subject of reincarnation from a unique perspective and does it with sensitivity and feeling. No parent can read this book without becoming emotionally involved with the characters. I look forward to reading the author ́s next book." --"Kudos for your book Crossing a Rainbow," said Joan Gillett of Grand Rapids, Michigan. "You are a very good author, and my hat is off to you." --Barbara Armenta of Mesa, Arizona, said she found the novel "a journey of intrigue and imagination...a true original." The following is a synopsis of Crossing a Rainbow: Megan Albright, a Phoenix child of the 90s, longs to return to the mountain ranch where she claims that she once lived with her Indian mother. After she tries to run away to reach her mysterious other home, her parents wallow in angst and confusion. While covering a conference at the Timberline Lodge in the high country, her father, newspaper reporter Stuart Albright, sees a portrait of a striking teen-age girl. Painted by artist and rancher Dawn Clovis, it depicts her daughter, Jani, who has been missing for several years. Megan, who has been plagued with nightmares about a teen-age girl ́s death, views the portrait in the presence of her parents and breaks down. She meets Dawn Clovis, a widowed Apache who married an Anglo rancher, and feels strong filial ties to her. Megan ́s divided loyalties distress her Anglo parents. They resent their daughter ́s bond with the Indian woman and growing desire to live with her. After a nightmare, Megan relates a horrifying account of Jani ́s kidnapping, rape and murder. Hikers later discover the teenager ́s body in a remote mountain area. Subsequently, Megan is also kidnapped, and her parents fear that she has met a fate similar to Jani ́s. When a mysterious illness strikes Megan ́s mother, Laurel Albright, she believes that someone has placed a curse on her, and she suspects Dawn Clovis of doing it.
