(From the publisher):
Genevieve LaCroix Dane Two Stars, married for just a little more than a year, is thankful to be with her beloved husband, Daniel Two Stars. Though they are struggling, they have each other and dream of making a happy home in a safe place.
But "happily ever after" is not always easy to live out in real life. Daniel and his friend, Robert Lawrence, now plow the land that used to be theirs in return for only a portion of the crops and the right to live in two small log cabins with their familys. Though many respect their hardworking Indian neighbors, others are unable to look past the color of their skins and see their hearts. They only see "murdering savages." In the wake of the Dakota Sioux uprising, fear and prejudice towards the Indians grow stronger every day.
How long will Genevieve and her family be able to turn the other cheek in the face of hatred and injustice? Is Daniel's restlessness a sign that God has another work for him beyond the farm? Should they stay in Minnesota or look for a better place out west? Heart of the Sandhills follows events that threaten Daniel and Gen's happy marriage- and which ultimately lead them into a more profound relationship with God and a future they never imagined.
