Spanish Conquistadors arrived in 1541. A century later, empowered by a dream, Manaha fights against the taboos of her tribe to keep alive the stories of their decimated and abandon homeland. ''A story that needs to be told'' (BookLife Prize in Fiction) that ''will both intrigue and entertain'' (Writer’s Digest Self-Published eBook Awards). “It's a novel that's surprisingly succinct for its subject, rich in its detail, and highly recommended for historical fiction readers who want more than a casual pursuit.” (D.
