Winds of Change

Guess what? The cover for Winds of Change is born. Isn't it beautiful.

The final manuscript edits have been submitted to the publisher as well as all the necessary material to start the ball rolling toward publication.

Short storyline blurb for Winds of Change:

After struggling through the throes of being kidnapped by Indians and traded for goods to the Arapahos, Sarah Anderson proves herself worthy of the Indian name Vision Seeker, becomes the wife to Running Swift and the mother to Little Feather.

Sarah settles into the comfortable daily routines of Indian wife and mother until her life is again changed when her husband is killed on a wagon raid. The Army charges into the village to arrest the warring warriors only to find Sarah living among the natives.

Rescued and returned to Fort Laramie, Sarah must now face the difficult task of transitioning back into the white world with an Indian child, a soiled dove and shunned by the white populace. At the fort, her path crosses that of Patrick O’Brien whom she once loved. Confused and frightened, her spirit is lifted when she remembers that in her parfleche is the grass cross Patrick gave her several years ago and his promise to find her

It's a great cover , Gwyn. You're on a roll, babe, and it couldn't be deserved more.
The blurb is enticing, also, but I'll email you personally with a tiny comment about it.

Gwyn - you are such an inspiration to me! I love the new book cover, the blurb even more. I lurk here under a rock in Texas watching you build a career - not envious necessarily but certainly wishing I had your backbone. Like I said, you're an inspiration!
