A Sky Without Stars | A Quilts of Love Book
In 1951, Frankie Chasing Bear is a Lakota caught between cultures. She wants to raise her son Harold to revere his Lakota heritage, but she knows he will need to become as a white man to succeed. After his father’s killed in a barroom brawl, Harold and Frankie move to Arizona, where she begins a Lakota Star pattern quilt for Harold with tribal wisdom sung, sewn and prayed into it.
She distrusts Christians, as her own parents were forced to convert at an Indian School, until she meets BIA agent Nick Vandergriff, a half-Lakota who’s also caught between cultures. Nick must convince Frankie that white men and Christians aren’t all bad as he tries to win her heart in order to put the stars back into her sky.
I really like this series ~ the books are written by different authors but so far they are very good and I love the idea and story of the quilts woven into them. Frankie moves to Arizona after her husband is killed in a bar fight. She wants her son to grow up knowing his heritage but also as a white man. Frankie finds it hard to trust anyone until she mets Nick Vandergriff. At first she has a hard time letting Nick in her heart. She doesn’t know if what to do. This story is both sad and heart warming. You will want to read A Sky Without Starts to see how Nick wins Frankie’s heart and how it changes her outlook on people. I can’t wait till the next book.
