Whispering Wind is an exciting, romantic, and emotionally-charged tale of a Native American teenage girl and the two adults who are at odds on how to shape her destiny. She has a hard life on a poverty-stricken reservation. A half-breed, she is despised by the full bloods and loathed by those outside the Native American community. Her love of gliding upon the winter's frozen surface of Spirit Lake seems her only refuge from despair. It is tragedy that provides her with an unforeseen opportunity. An Olympic hopeful for the US Ladies' Figure Skating Team is killed in a plane crash. Coach Paul Wisner, grief stricken, retires. Fate, however, brings him face to face with Whispering Wind. Can she compete at the level of skating Paul coaches? He sees a champion, but will Whispering Wind's Aunt Monica prevent her from accomplishing her dreams? Monica trusts no white man--especially Paul. Love, however, is an equal opportunity employer. When animosity turns into love, the ice begins to thaw. Chance and determination bring Whispering Wind, Monica, and Paul into a circle of spiritual healing.

I absolutely Love reading this book I recomended to everyone especially for those people who love to dream and work hard to make his/her dreams come true.
For those who enjoy figure skating, romance and drama, this is a great read. The character images are well created, the drama keeps you turning to the next page. It's difficult to conceive of a story that blends Native American culture with ice skating, but it's done in this novel and done extremely well.
