I recently re-read this book, and remembered why I loved writing it. I think my admiration for the Lakota Sioux shows through in the storyline, as well as my unbiased portrayal of them as human beings who were lied to, cheated, and spurred to the defend themselves and their land based on their betrayal of the white man. I hope my shared excerpt today might stir your interest to read about Grace and Little Elk in this fictional historical romance.
Writing historical novels as provided me the opportunity to research and learn more about the genre I love. Even when I veered to contemporary, I managed to turn both books into time-travels that tie in with the old west. I'm just hopelessly in love with cowboys and Indians. :)
Excerpt: (This gives you an idea of how Cecile's life has changed as she deals with the death of the chief and the possible rise of her husband to the highest status in the tribe.)
