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.

My thoughts: I am in love with this quilt series and A Sky Without Stars if definitely another keeper. I loved learning about the customs of Frankie’s people as well as reading about how she had to adjust her own customs and beliefs to fit in and get an education. It’s sad that this did happen and that these people did not get to have much of a say or even get an education unless they jumped through the hoops. Will Nick be able to break through her barriers and help Frankie and Harry or will he just be another Christian man that she can’t trust? Great read! Go pick up a copy today!
