Tanayia

Whisper upon the Water, Book 1

Native American Historical Romance


Tanayia is alone in the world.  Her village destroyed and her people

murdered by a group of revolutionares who now hold her hostage.  A daring

escaped on the edge of Cochise's stronghold saves Tanayia's life, but she 

discovers her ordeal is only beginning.

 J
Forced to live in a government run boarding school, Tanayia is stripped of her

identity. The headmistress is bent on destroying Tay, but Jacob Five-Wounds

stands in her way.

 

Jacob urges Tay to run away with him—but when diphtheria strikes the school.

Tanayia must make a choice--a choice she knows may cost her both, Jacob and his love. 


“This well-researched novel is taunt with all the tensions and passions of any tale in which the characters are trapped. That Sister Enid eventually gets her comeuppance (and from a native doctor, too) is only just and satisfying, and an epilogue tells of both the compromises and the triumphs of Tay’s marriage to Jacob Five-Wounds (once a fellow inmate of the school.”
