Voted Top Pick and 2017 Novel of the Year Runner-Up by Underground Book Reviews
For Clara LaCroix, the past was the place she preferred to dwell. That was where her memories of Boone, and the life they shared, resided.
But for Joe Black Hawk, the past was a painful mix of a fading heritage he didn’t want to lose, and a lifetime of mistakes he’d just as soon forget.
In the beautifully rugged grasslands over which the Lakota Sioux once roamed freely, the lives of fifth-generation rancher, Clara LaCroix, and fifth-generation reservation Indian Joe Black Hawk, collide in a tragic event that fuels an eruption of racial bitterness.
Portraying the profound effects horses can have on human lives, this is the story about the importance of the past, the relevance of ancestry, and the critical balance between remembering the roots that set us apart while celebrating the humanity that binds us together.
