Kelly Ferjutz, the author of this exciting historical novel, has written three more books which will be released soon from Forest Hill Publishing.  One of them, Secret Shores, is the sequel to Windsong.  Contact the author for an autographed copy at books@ntlink.net

 

WINDSONG is set on Mackinac Island in 1937 and is about a young Indian woman, Windsong, and her baby son.  Windsong falls in love with Etienne, a Frenchman, and their life seems to get perplexed.  The plot is filled with romance, love and mystery, and as the story unfolds, their relationship grows as well as Windsong’s son.  A trial marriage will tie Windsong and Etienne together, but what is going to happen when the Green Corn Ceremony starts?  Will they separate as the Indian custom orders?  Will Etienne let Windsong go? 

 

In 26 chapters Kelly Ferjutz grasps the readers’ interest and keeps it intact, thus making this book a real page-turner that will satisfy all romance and historical novel lovers.  The story involves educational elements as well, letting readers learn about Indian customs, and historical elements as it is set at the time when Michigan became a state and a smallpox epidemic decimated many Indian tribes.

 

The language is simple, descriptive and emotional.  The style is plain enough to be easily read by people from all walks of life, and the characters are strong and vivid.  Windsong is a very ‘live’ character that we would think she is real.  This novel is a good read that is both entertaining and educational.  It is available from Ingram or Baker&Taylor, Amazon or BN.com.  Autographed copies, directly from the author at books@netlink.net

(P.O. BOX 1837, Cleveland, OH 44106)

The book is available both in regular type and large print.
