Young Snow Bird is taken from her people in a raid and forced to leave her marshes and people behind. A young brave in the raiding party offers help but he cannot help all of the women in children. She must decide if she can leave them and search for help.
I was not sure what to expect when I started reading this novella. I was thrown right into the story and loved it. I think my only problem with novellas is I always want MORE. Snow Bird is an interesting character who holds her own and knows herself and how to handle any situation. She is smart and inspiring. If Kristen writes a series of novellas based on Snow Bird I'll be in line to buy them all. I would definitely recommend checking this novella out. I purchased my copy on the Kindle story and read it one day while waiting for the train to come.
Do you enjoy novellas? I think the redeeming factor in novellas is when I have a short period of time they are great. I love losing myself in a story and knowing that I will have used my time wisely.
