I’m really enjoying Linda Acaster’s Beneath the Shining Mountains. I’m halfway through and can’t say enough about her prose, setting, and characters. This is the only Native American book in her backlist. My fingers are crossed she’ll write more.
Here is the blurb:
1830s Northern Plains of America. Among the Apsaroke Crow people Moon Hawk yearns for the love of Winter Man, but why would a man with so many lovers want to take a wife?
Her wry challenge captures Winter Man’s attention and starts a game of tease and spar that threatens devastating consequences to her family and to Winter Man. A story of horse raiding and buffalo hunts, honour among rival warrior societies, and one woman’s determination to wed the man of her dreams.
