Staff Reviews

You want to read this book! Daunis Fontaine has always felt torn between two worlds, never quite fitting into her grandmother's world of wealth and privilege and also an outsider as an unenrolled tribal member of her Ojibwe community. Her family is still reeling from the death of her beloved uncle and the illness of her grandmother when Daunis witnesses a murder and becomes a confidential informant in a secret FBI investigation of a drug ring. In her search to find those responsible for the recent tragedies in her community, Daunis must face tough questions about what she will need to do to protect her family, her hometown and her Ojibwe traditions and community. This book is part thriller and part forbidden romance and steeped in contemporary Native experience. It's one of those books you feel compelled to devour quickly and yet want to savor slowly as well.
