      APB Perspective Review :I love reading new authors especially , if it's a good book . This story grabs you from the first page , I was invested in Julia and I wanted her to be free ! I felt she truly got her freedom once she realized she was safe and free to love Sunkawan Iyopeya . I felt a little cheated because I wanted more of their story together other than that this is a good book and I recommend you read it .

      Enjoyed reading this book, had me engrossed throughout the whole reading. Julia had a hard life being of mixed race and having a master that was possessive of her. She finds love in the arms of Native American Sunkawan but boy did it take a lot to get to that point and I do mean a lot. So much hardship and I don't mean just with the way things were back in the day where majority of the work was done by hand but also the prejudices Julia faced. She had a drop of black in her so she might as well [...]

      Live Free, Die Tryin'This is a beautiful love story between an Native American man, Trades for Horses and a African American (slave) woman, Julia that is the basis for the odyssey in Lakota Dreaming. I thought this book would answer all of my questions regarding Julia and what happened to her as slowly revealed in Lakota Dreaming -- but, not quite. Still, I loved it anyway.Longer review to follow soon.

      A truly riveting read -- it's moving, suspenseful, and often painfully real, dealing with issues as relevant today as they were over 150 years ago. Highly recommended.

      I truly enjoyed this novel. This was my first interracial novel containing a Native American male and a African American female. I truly enjoyed it. I often wondered what the relationship was like between slaves and the Native Americans. This novel gave me a small glimpse.It still amazes me how someone can come to a land that is already inhabited and lived upon, and just take it over. Just because the people skin tones, physical features, and language is different, you feel that they are inferio [...]

      Good prequel to Lakota Dreaming. Well written and gives the reader an introduction to the ancestor who comes to Zora in her dreams in "Lakota Dreaming ". The ending was a bit abrupt, but the author left me wanting more, so perhaps there will be a series.

      Lakota Moon Rising, Constance GillamGenre: Historical Fiction, RomanceI don't read a lot of historical fiction, I'm fairly selective but this is the sort I really enjoy, a romance, wrapped up in a very real period realistic story about the people involved, the day to day issues and events that they undertake. Julia has a sad back story but one that was very real for the time, that affected so many people. Horrible times when people of colour were regraded as less, who had no rights, whose childr [...]

      Julia and Sunkawakan Iyopeya's story is real, truthful, honest, and sensual. The author clearly knows her stuff - Lakota Moon Rising is incredibly well-researched without resorting to any info dumps or unnecessary telling. But it's the love story that drew me in and made me stay up way too late reading this non-traditional and yet still very sensual romance. It's like an amazing historical fiction on A&E combined with a very contemporary understanding of a woman's fight for justice and her p [...]
