A tale of finding grace and blessing amongst life’s hardships
In the wilds of 19th century Ontario, Maang-ikwe, a young Ojibwe woman, falls into a forbidden love, breaks her father’s honor, and surrenders her trust to someone who betrays it. The abuse she suffers divides her from her tribe and causes her to give up what she holds most dear.
Niin-mawin must come to grips with his culture being ripped away from him. Brought up in a “white man’s” school, he suffers through an enforced “civilized” education and separation from his family. When a man he respects reveals a secret about Niin-mawin’s past, he embarks on a search for the person he hopes can mend the part of his heart that’s always been missing.
Both Maang-ikwe and Niin-mawin wonder how a harvest of pain and sorrow will impact their lives. Will they find the blessings amongst the hardships, or will they allow the results of division and abuse to taint their hearts forever?
Fans of historical fiction, Native American fiction, Christian historical fiction, clean romance, and literary fiction will be moved by this deep, heartfelt novel.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
“Will you name him?”
Nimaamaa, my mother, crouches near me as I suckle my son. He is both my joy and my heartache. My shame and my pride. His eyes reflect my own, but his skin is light. Not the pale sickness of some white men but much lighter than my own. His dark hair grows thick on his little head and appears almost like winter frost has touched the ends.
What name do I give him? That should be his father’s job, his vision. I think hard. I don’t want to wait for a dream to come. I give him the name he came with.
Niin-mawin—I cry for him.
