Good, very good indeed.

The author has demonstrated an impressive ability to present an authentic environment for a classic love story. The story has a quality about it that feels mythical in it's portrayal of the Native Americans - demonstrating their honour and wisdom at every turn.

How much of this is a fantasy, I'm not sure - apologies I know very little about Native American culture although I feel that might be about to change - I have a vague memory of a film with Dustin Hoffman, where as a member of a Native American tribe there was a character that, while male, lived as a woman and this was totally accepted. Would it be possible (if unlikely) for a woman to be born and identified as "male" from birth?

Whatever the historical realty, this is a well craft and compelling novel that I enjoyed thoroughly.

I am looking forward to reading more of her back catalogue.
