Linda Acasterabout this book: 1830s northern plains. For the Crow people living beneath the Shining Mountains it is a time of horses, a time of plenty. For Winter Man it is a time for laughing with his friends and enjoying his numerous sexual liaisons. For Moon Hawk it is time to summon her courage and make Winter Man see the love she bears him, and gain his love in return. But why would a man with so many lovers want to take a wife?
"Lover? I have no lover. There's not a man alive who can entice me!"
Challenging his virility captures Winter Man's attention, but it is a dangerous game she plays. Their tease and spar soon spirals beyond control, threatening Moon Hawk and her family with ridicule and shame, and Winter Man his standing among the Fox warrior society.
• "…The story mesmerized me, with its rich detail and strong emotions…"
• "…a definite good read, and well done. You won't be disappointed…"
Linda Acaster is a one-time northern plains historical re-enactor, and her empathy with the Apsaroke/Crow and their way of life of the period glows through her writing.
