Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
The story of Cynthia Ann Parker, who was captured by the Comanche and later recaptured by white settlers. Told in alternating chapters by Lucy Parker, her cousin, and from Cynthia Ann’s own viewpoint, it’s a different and sad look at relationships between Native Americans and settlers in Civil War era Texas.
