** spoiler alert ** Overall, this is a beautifully written novel. I feel that Stephens captured the culture of the Native Americans in the mid to late 1800s. With little knowledge of the political struggles between England and France that caused Danielle's family to become destitute, Canadian history and Native American history, I felt like an observer through the entire novel--just barely understanding the magnitude of Danielle and Shadow Song's struggles. As a result, it was hard to connect and feel a part of the story.

In the end, during the afterward, it was disappointing that the real historical event of this novel plays such a minor part in the story.

I received a copy of this book via the Early Reviewers program on LibraryThing.com.
