A Sky Without Stars – Book Review

Frankie Chasing Bear isn’t the kind of girl who is naturally drawn to the art of quilt-making. But, Frankie is the type of girl who keeps the promises she makes!

So – when Frankie is twelve and her grandmother makes her promise to create a Lakota Star quilt for son during their last visit together, Frankie is determined to keep that promise, remembering her grandmother’s last words to her…

Sew love into every stitch and remember: a bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars…

A Sky Without Stars tells the rich story of Frankie Chasing Bear – a Lakota woman living in the 1950s who relocates with her son from Pine Ridge, South Dakota to Arizona after her husband’s untimely death.

Like any mother, she only wants what is best for her son – but will life for them be any easier in new surroundings?

Frankie finds herself torn between cultures… and between raising her son to honor his Lakota heritage while living out his Christian faith!

A Sky Without Stars is the 15th book in the Quilts Of Love Series from Abingdon Press – and a must-read for fans of historical fiction, particularly those revolving around Native American themes!

Linda has done a wonderful job of weaving together a beautiful story filled with family, faith and drama.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
