On this Monday in 1862, the U.S.-Dakota War erupted in southwestern Minnesota. Sarah Wakefield and her two young children were taken captive by Dakota warriors while traveling the government road on the Sioux reservation.

Today Sarah’s story has been officially released in novel form by One Sky Press. After nearly six years of research and writing, I’m very happy that Beneath the Same Stars is now available to the public. Will you give it a read?

Get your copy of Beneath the Same Stars at these Amazon links:

  • ebook (99¢ for a limited time)
  • paperback ($13.95)
  • audiobook (coming in November)

You may also click here to buy the paperback from me through PayPal (all major credit and debit cards accepted). If you wish to pay by check, contact me directly.

I hope you’ll also take advantage of these resources about the novel:
