A friend recommended this book to me as I am interested in archaeology and anthropology. I really enjoyed not only the story but also the interesting details that Sholes wove through the story. Good fast read!

I thought that it was evident that the author did a lot of research. I really got a feel for how those people lived back in that time. I kept wanting to read more because it seemed that I was always going to learn more about how they lived back in that early time. Plus I liked the story.

This is the first in the EDGE OF THE NEW WORLD collection. Wonderful read about a young Tegesta Indian woman's life before Columbus's arrival. The story brings to light how these ancient people were no different than we are today. It is the story of love, tragedy, struggle, sacrifice, and triumph. Sholes transports the reader in time, feeding just enough about how these people lived throughout the story without it being overbearing.

When Teeka was taken from her tribe by the enemy I wondered how she would ever manage to get home again. As the story wound, I found myself with a lot of mixed emotions. The characters were so well developed I could feel what they were feeling.  Well done!!!  I think I will get the whole collection!

This will definitely go on my favorites list. It grabbed me from the start and I was hooked through the entire book. I might even read it again, but first I think I will try somer of her other books.

In the days before North America was discovered, one woman is between love for Auro, the Shaman’s son, and a forced marriage to Kaho, the chief of an enemy band. I enjoyed reading about the intricacies of daily chores, religious rituals, and the roles of gender, class, and age. At the heart of the story is a fading romance that is replaced by a blooming romance as Teeka blends in with a new culture and learns to love the man she was forced to marry. There are wonderful scenes that made me rejoice as well as sadden. I was fascinated by Auro’s fall, an examination of the human spirit denied true love. This book has it all – shocks, tears, hope, hatred, love, and honor. The pace of the story was perfect and I found myself thinking of the characters whenever I wasn’t reading. The characters are memorable, ever evolving, and complex. It is a gentle tale, told without little drama, but in a realistic way. A tantalizing, visual read, which I highly recommend.
