A Sky Without Stars by Linda S. Clare

I received a copy of A Sky Without Stars in exchange for this review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

I have really enjoyed reading each book in the”Quilt Of Love” series. I love how each book in the series is written by a different author, giving us the ability to get a feel for their writing style, and how they weave a story of love and forgiveness around a quilt.
The fact that I love to quilt, sew, and crochet — is one reason why I love this series so much.
Sky without stars
In a Sky Without Stars by Linda S. Clare the Native American story line and the historical time frame really made this one of my favorite books in this series! I love reading stories about the Native Americans, and I really loved Frankie Chasing Bears story.
Not only did I love the story line, but I could feel the struggle of life during that time period and I really felt as if I was part of the story.
Frankie is such a strong, brave character, who really wants Harold, her son to know about his heritage. The author provides more than a few twists to keep the plot moving, and one of those twists is the character of Nick, who is dealing with his own issues.
I think that this is a book you would truly love.

About the book

In 1951, Frankie Chasing Bear is a Lakota caught between cultures. She wants to raise her son Harold to revere his Lakota heritage, but she knows he will need to become as a white man to succeed. After his father’s killed in a barroom brawl, Harold and Frankie move to Arizona, where she begins a Lakota Star pattern quilt for Harold with tribal wisdom sung, sewn and prayed into it.

She distrusts Christians, as her own parents were forced to convert at an Indian School, until she meets BIA agent Nick Vandergriff, a half-Lakota who’s also caught between cultures. Nick must convince Frankie that white men and Christians aren’t all bad as he tries to win her heart in order to put the stars back into her sky.
