Summer of Indie's next author is Allison Bruning. Allison Bruning is the author of Calico. Calico is a historical fiction, romance, and suspense novel, and it is the first book in the Children of the Shawnee series.
We asked author Allison Bruning to give us a closer look at her book:
"A man whose heart appears pure shall deceive you. The power he holds over you leads you to evil. You shall denounce the ways of Our Grandmother. Another man comes, whose pure heart beats for you alone, and who has a pure spirit devoted to Our Grandmother. He shall defeat the evil and sets you free."
A prophecy has been cast against her. In a harsh world deep within the western frontier of Ohio and Kentucky, Calico Marie Turner must learn to survive among the Shawnee and the trust the one man who hates her the most, Chief Little Owl Quick as the Wind.
