Julia, a mixed-race woman, born into slavery in Louisiana escapes brutal plantation life only to be captured by the Comanche. She holds tight to her dream of Canada and freedom as she unwillingly witnesses the acts of savagery the Indians perpetrate against the whites.
She is reluctantly drawn to a visiting Sioux warrior, Sunkawakan. The newcomer is both gentle and savage, compassionate and ruthless. Falling in love with him will mean an end to her dreams of freedom in the North.
In a vision, Sunkawakan Iyopeya saw white soldiers corral his people like cattle onto barren land. He visits the Cheyenne to convince them to band with him and his tribe, the Lakota Sioux, against the soldiers at Fort Laramie who would destroy the Indian way of life. While in the village, he meets beautiful but fiercely independent Julia. He is torn between his attraction to her and his duty to his people.
Torn between love and duty, pride and an intense need, they must both decide if this new love is worth the change in their destiny.
A different and intense historical romance. Read Lakota Moon Rising today.
