Willa was only fourteen when the Indians took her from her home. She was given a new name, Burning Sky, and was expected to behave and do the tasks assigned to her. Fear was overcome by resolution, eventually, and Burning Sky seemed to find a new home. But these are the times of the American Revolution, and she finds the opportunity to return home. Life is so different. Her home is not in good shape, her parents political views are not hers, and she finds she misses the life of Burning Sky. Will she get the chance to return to the People? Will she teach those around her about acceptance? Can she survie living in two worlds?
This is a very engaging book that captured my interest from the first page. Ms. Benton creates a realistic story filled with rich characters and descriptions. I felt for Willa/Burning Sky and for the choices she had to make. I think you will too, and highly recommend this book. I received my review copy from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review.
