    Lakota traditions and modern romance

    The story of a Native Lakota woman Lena Cedar Woman. The story starts out with Sonny standing across the street from a new restaurant called Cedar Woman then flashes back to the beginning of her story with the meeting of her parents and their wedding. Rich with imagery describing Native legends, traditions, and modern life this is the story of a woman who loves to cook, understands soul mating because of her parent's total love of each other, falls in love with a wonderful man, faces triumph and tragedy and finally finds her soul mate and her restaurant. Along the way she meets marvelous strong women who help and guide her along her life path. The book is based on real life including descriptions of ceremonial traditions, Native foods (including the recipes), the treatment of cleft-palates, and the life and hopes of the modern business woman. Native words are footnoted with pronunciation and meanings once with a dictionary appendix at the back. These footnotes do not distract from the story in any way and make it much more meaningful for the reader who is not familiar with native terms. The book was a great read with lots of laughter and tears. I enjoyed the story and hope that there is a follow up book about Lena's friends.

    A true must read!

    Once again Debra works her magic with words!
    She draws you in, and holds you spellbound with the story of Lena "Cedar Woman" Young Bear!
    She also provides a more realistic view of Native Americans, without the overly romanticized perceptions that most people have about us.
    She weaves her magic through her words, enabling you to see the characters to come to life before your eyes!
    I had the privilege of being a part of Cedar Woman, from start to finish, and I highly recommend this book to everyone!

    Loved it, loved it, loved it . . . from cover to cover.

    I so enjoyed this book -- it's the kind of read that takes you away from your problems for a while as you get all involved in someone else's life -- and a whole different way of life at that.
