Summary, etc.:
"The pious women of Batoche scorn abused wife and mother Josette Lavoie for daring to question the church and taking drastic measures to avoid death by pregnancy. When Riel arrives, he discovers that she is the granddaughter of his most valued ally, Chief Big Bear, and makes her his disciple. But there’s a price: she must hide the truths that their new leader spent two years in an insane asylum and has plans for the Métis to leave their beloved Roman Catholic religion for his own Apostolic Church of the New World...Torn by the local priest’s demands that she spy on Riel, and the rebel leaders’ increasing paranoia, Josette is oblivious to signs that her daughter has fallen victim to devastating acts."-- Author's website.
