Book description
All of her life, Kathy Little Bird has heard stories of her grandmother, Mrs. Mike, from her grandmother, Mrs. Mike, from her own mother, a Cree Indian nurse who married a wounded Austrian soldier during the waning years of WWII. Living with her mother and stepfather on the plains of St. Alban's, Kathy takes the tradition of the Cree music to heart-"singing" the wilderness and the people she knows so well.

But Kathy longs for freedom from her sheltered life and takes her first chance to get away, marrying a charming con artist who promises her the world-and leaving behind her childhood sweetheart. Staying in seedy hotels and singing in run-down clubs, she slowly finds the fame she craves. But screaming fans and hit songs cannot fill the hole within her heart-the aching need she hasd for the native people she left behind. the father she never knew, and a love that will calm her restless soul...
