Bravura Lambert has a five-year-old autistic daughter to raise, as well as just becoming the proud owner of a farm and a construction company. Dane is her absentee-husband most of the time, working in the oilfields until he needs some money, then he comes home to see his wife and child. When Dane comes home and finds Bravura getting friendly with Tonk Redhawk, a Native American artist, Dane decides that maybe he needs to stay closer to home for a while.
Tonk Redhawk has a way of communicating with horses and wants to teach Bravura’s daughter, Lily, the ways of his people. Lily loves horses and knows the history of the different horse breeds by heart. She loves being around Tonk and wants to learn how to ride.
Bravura is not happy that her husband is home, especially after she realizes what he wants her to do. Dane figures her father and grandfather have a lot of money and has decided he wants in on some of it after her grandfather dies. Dane has a way of making Bravura feel guilty about not trusting him. He wants her to ask for a loan so he can go to school, or so he says.
Things start coming to the surface after Dane is seen hanging out with a known flirt, who came back from the oil fields the same time as Dane. Bravura understands about Dane’s unfaithfulness but will not give him any money. Bravura is going to get on her feet by herself so she can make a better life for her daughter.
LOIS GREIMAN knows her way around horses and artfully portrays the chemistry between a woman and her horse. HEARTH SONG, the second book in the HOME IN THE HILLS series, highlights the Native American culture and the ways of the horse. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves reading about the Indian culture and their bond with animals.
