Genre: Historical Romance, America
Nowak’s latest historical romance is largely inspired by real people and events that surrounded the controversial trial of Ponca Indian chief Standing Bear in 1879. The novel is fast-paced, steamy when appropriate and accurately reflects the history of the trial and intended time period. Better still, given the characters’ ongoing smart and sassy dialogue, this novel will appeal to fans of both historical and contemporary fiction.
Lise Dupree is an established head librarian for the Omaha Public Library, intent on hiding her part-Sioux background in order to maintain her position and to make a comfortable life for herself. When Lise’s aunt, Rose, is arrested with a group of other Indians, Lise agrees to help District Attorney Zach Spencer perform research for the case in order to clear her aunt’s name. Together, Lise and Zach confront both secrets and truths that will end up changing the way they view freedom and equal rights. (FIVE STAR, Aug., 288 pp., $25.95)
