Overview

It's 1920, and although Swift McKinley, an American Indian raised in a white family on a Wisconsin dairy farm, is accustomed to his non-white status, he no longer can remain silent about his lifelong love for his blonde neighbor. To his great joy, Aurie Petersen not only reciprocates his feelings, she insists they will marry, despite her father's bitter opposition. Swift is astounded when he inherits an arid farm in North Dakota, and his foster siblings turn on him. Devastated by loss and rejection, the sensitive youth decides it will be best for Aurie if he leaves without telling her. Aurie, however, is both psychic and determined. She has "seen" their future in the dark eyes of her beloved, and they WILL be together, even if she has to follow him on horseback all the way to North Dakota. Choosing its moment, Fate intervenes, separating the young lovers and setting them on different paths to maturity and the family Aurie "knows" they are destined to create.

Editorial Reviews

Sandee McCann
Foredestined Summer is a truly unique story of love, growth and maturity of a young couple struggling to be together in the 1920's despite racism and adversity. If you're looking for something new and a bit different without the needless pages and pages of background history weighting you down, C.J. Winter's Foredestined Summer is just what you're looking for. Highly recommended. 4 1/2 flames-rare find
Lori Graham
I found Foredestined Summer to be a quick paced story with enough intrigue to make you want to keep reading but not enough to make you white knuckled rather along the lines of an old Agatha Christie kind of puzzler. C.J. Winters gets your mind to working with this one. Overall rating: 4.25
Debra Gaynor
Foredestined Summer is a beautiful love story. Winters successful demonstrates the false impressions and prejudice of people. She also demonstrates greed. I have always had so much respect for the American Indian that I cringe to think they were so mistreated. How sad that people look at the outside rather than the inside. The plot is well-written and flows smoothly. The characters are well-developed. I like the characters and thought Aurie and Swift worked well together.
