Peggy Bechkoabout this book: Love historic Romance? Then you're going to love Cloud Dancer.
I've always been in love with the Southwestern desert of the American west - I live here. Have written and had published novels in the western genre through Doubleday and other publishing houses in fact.
Cloud Dancer goes further back in history to the time of the Spanish arrival in what is now New Mexico and their destruction of the pueblo of Acoma about 1598. In a time of turmoil and war the young maiden from Acoma falls in love with an Apache Spirit warrior sent to Acoma to teach the natives the ways of war and when war reaches the heights of Acoma and her peaceful life crumbles before her eyes she believes her love is lost in the battle.
Alone and bitter, Cloud Dancer takes to herself the fierce Apache ways of her lost love White hawk and vowed never to kneel before the enemy again.
Far from what remained of Acoma Cloud Dancer and White Hawk find each other again, but the lovers face new struggles as conflict within the Apache tribe of her Spirit Warrior and the ever-encroaching Spaniards threaten their love.
Come read a sample of Cloud Dancer and enter her world as she transforms from young maiden to warrior woman. It's a story I enjoyed writing and researching because the conflicts are not simple. It's a clash of multiple cultures on more than one level. It reflects the power of love, the destructive force of jealous and prejudice and brings together two people from diverse cultures who forge a new life in a time of change.
