Quilts of Love | A SKY WITHOUT STARS by Linda S. Clare – Kindle HDX Giveaway & “Spring Fling” Facebook Party!

In 1951, Frankie Chasing Bear is a Lakota caught between modern and traditional cultures. She wants to raise her young son Harold to revere his traditional Lakota heritage, but she knows he will need to become as a white man to succeed in the world. A barroom fight changes everything. Harold's father dies in a bar brawl and Harold and Frankie move to Arizona to start a new life. Frankie begins a special traditional Lakota Star pattern quilt for Harold with tribal wisdom sung, sewn and prayed into it. An encounter with BIA agent Nick Vandergriff changes everything again. Up until then Frankie never trusted Christians, Her own parents were forced to convert to Christianity at an Indian School.  Vandergriff is a half-Lakota who is also caught between cultures.  Will Nick succeed in convincing Frankie that white men and Christians aren't all bad?  He tries to win her heart but who knows what might happen.

This is a lovely story about a protective mom and her son in Arizona. I enjoyed getting a peek into the unusual life of a single mom back in the 1950's.  The added element of her Lakota heritage makes the book even more fascinating. Frankie Chasing Bear and Harold are great people in their own right and I loved the hope that was injected into the story.  I love how the special Lakota Star quilt and the construction of it is built into the whole storyline just perfectly.
