Graham continues her powerful McDonnell saga, following Adelaide Johnson through tragedy and triumph. Adelaide’s journey is one of self-acceptance, of overcoming prejudice and fear and, ultimately, of understanding the power of love. Graham delivers a story filled with important lessons in a realistic, compelling Native American romance that is thought provoking yet so touching that readers will be completely captivated.

Adelaide decides to make her home with the Cherokee, who call her Shadow Girl and view her ability to see the future in her dreams as a gift. To Adelaide, it has always been a curse and she forces herself to awaken before the end of each vision. As a beloved member of the tribe, she is expected to marry a warrior. After her betrothed’s death, Adelaide is stunned to learn she is to wed Jesse Black, a recent captive. Jesse hates the Cherokee and is unwilling to believe he now holds a warrior’s soul within his body. As Adelaide helps him heal, she aids him in accepting his new family. Jesse plans to escape and bring Adelaide with him. He has no idea that she fears white men and will do whatever she can to make Jesse see his new life as a wonderful experience.
