eBook Description: When Wildcat saw Mourning Dove for the first time, he knew she was the woman he wanted as his wife. The fact that she had a son and a daughter were only an added bonus, as Wildcat had always adored children. Mourning Dove did not think her past would allow someone like Wildcat to love her. Her rejection only sent him to the village that banished her seven winters earlier in search of the truth. Within the village of Mourning Dove's birth, Wildcat suffers a life threatening injury as he searches for the reason for her rejection. Even though Mourning Dove knows she is putting her own life in jeopardy, she rushes to Wildcat's side to nurse him back to health. As she does, she is forced to reveal the truth about her first husband's banishment. In doing so, she changes the entire make up of the village of her birth. This is the Third Book in the historical romance / time travel series, following Birdsinger's Woman and Snapping Turtle's Honor. All books in the series may be read independently of the other titles, and all three books are available.

Wildcat squirmed against the bindings that secured his wrists. As his eyes adjusted to the dim light of the lodge, he saw that his brother, Wading Bird, his sister's husband, Proud Elk, and his friend, Spotted Pony, were with him.
"What do you think they will do to us?" Wildcat asked.
"Do not fool yourself, brother," Wading Bird replied. "Before the sun sets this day we will all walk with the ancestors. We were fools to listen to Buffalo Calf. His loyalty to Hawk will serve no purpose but to cost us our lives."
Wildcat could hear the anger that tinged his brother's words and tended to agree with him. Before they left the village, Buffalo Calf had filled their heads with thoughts of victory. They would travel the distance between Hawk's village and this one, take the Spirit Woman while she slept and return as heroes.
As young men, their heads were filled with such lofty goals, and they had not asked Serpent's Wing to bless their mission. If they had, none of this would have happened. The gods would have looked upon them kindly and protected them from the evil that could, at any moment, befall them.
