Review by Rosemary Morris
This novel by talented novelist, Ms Charbonneau swept me back in time to when America joined in the Second World War.
Two young Navajo shepherds, Luke Kayenta and Nantai, his clan brother, from the Indian reservation in Arizona, are engaged by the Office of Strategic Services. Their task is to create a code based on the Navajo language. One which will defeat the enemy whose business is to crack codes.
Regardless of danger Luke and Nantai pose as shepherds between the mountains of Spain and France, which is occupied by the Nazis.
Ms Charbonneau’s fast-paced novel reveals heroism, romance and tragedy.
Until I read this novel, I knew nothing about Navajo culture and customs such as, the celebration which honours a baby’s first smile.
