Both of you have won an e-copy of "Sky Tinted Water". This really is a sweet little romance and I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.

This is the story of a family who moved to Minnesota from the Boston area back in the time of the civil war and Indian uprisings. It is the story of their everyday life—the ups and downs, the joys and the worries. It depicts how people stuck together and helped each other. When an Indian family shows up at their door with a very pregnant wife-she is helped-and a son is born. That act of kindness is repaid-how I will not tell you or I will give away part of the story! It is also the story of a true love—between a husband and wife of long standing and the sweet romance and marriage of a young couple.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this—it was refreshing. I will be watching out for the sequel!
PREFACE (from the E-Book)
The name Minnesota is based on the Dakota Sioux Indian word for sky tinted water, which refers to the Minnesota River and the state's many lakes.
Before European settlement of North America, Minnesota was populated by the Dakota people. As Europeans settled the east coast, Native American movement caused migration of Native Americans into the Minnesota area.
Treaties between European settlers and the Dakota and Ojibwe gradually forced the natives off their lands and on to smaller reservations. As conditions deteriorated for the Dakota, tensions rose, leading to the Dakota War of 1862. The result of the six–week war was the execution of 38 Dakota — the largest mass execution in United States history — and the exile of most of the rest
of the Dakota to the Crow Creek Reservation in Dakota Territory. As many as 800 white settlers died during the uprising.
Sky Tinted Water and the second book in the series, Sky Dance are fiction novels 'loosely' themed around several events of the Civil War and the Dakota Sioux uprising in Minnesota.
