(From the publisher):
Afer surviving the Sioux uprising of 1862, Genevieve LaCroix, daughter of a Dakota Sioux and a French aristocrat, is now helping to care for widower Simon Dane's children. Though physical wounds are healing, it is taking more time for Gen's spirit to revive after learning of Daniel Two Star's death by hanging. Though Simon has asked her to marry him, Gen cannot bring herself to give him an answer so soon after her bereavement.
As Gen waits for God to speak into the silence of her heart, Simon begins a ministry to the Dakota Sioux who are suffering and starving at Camp McClellan. Trying to make angry settlers understand that not all Indians are alike and that many Sioux risked their lives to save whites from the rebels, Gen and Simon both work to bring reconciliation to the frontier.
Will Gen say yes to Simon's proposal? Will they be able to keep the child that was rescued during the massacre? And what will happen if Gen learns that Daniel Two Stars is alive?
This sequel to Valley of the Shadow continues the story of a young woman who learns that while obedience to God often requires painful choices, it can also yield healing and unexpected joy.
