Finished reading ‘Calico--Children of the Shawnee: Book One’ by Allison Bruning. After having read the book a second time, I find myself perusing the story, amazed at how each of the characters' lives is strangely entwined with the others, and how they evolve and blend into the flow of the main plot. True history is included, tightly woven with threads of fantasy...right down to the Gotcha! Suspenseful ending. Truly an entertaining and informative read that stays with me. I’ll definitely check out this author’s next book.
