After 12 years away from the Dakotas, Trey Latimer returns to recuperate from a serious head wound.
Frances "Frankie" Tracker is very sure she is over her infatuation of Trey. Frankie was Trey's old buddy's kid sister.
Trey was talked into taking an easy job, being Sheriff [of the non-Indians]. Frankie's brother, Gorgeous George is found to be seeing Latimer's daughter, Lannie and is nearly killed.
Frankie is dead-sure that Race Latimer is the guilty party or his father.
It is the age old conflict of the white parties taking unfair advantage of the Native Americans - and the NA's needing justice.
In the process of finding out who tried to finish off a Tracker, we see Frankie and Trey finally falling in love after their separation. Not any strong resentment, only distrust.
Trey turns out to be a divorced man with a daughter, and Frankie? Well apparently she's been there, done that.
Interesting story with a little look into the Native dancing - nice characters - not powerfully moving but good.
A very good read for those who like the Native American stories.
Look for Race's story in the next Moon story.
Trey Latimer lived just a stone's throw away from the reservation and away from Frances "Frankle" Tracker, his old buddy's kid sister.
Enjoyable. I've read most of Kathleen Eagles books.
