Journey By the Sackcloth Moon
In Gray Rainbow Journey, winner of a National Best Books Award and a Florida Authors and Publishers President’s Book Award, KB Schaller introduces the reader to the mesmerizing plight of Dina Youngblood, a young Seminole/Cherokee woman who struggles at once with dreams and demons, romance and religion, tradition and transition.
Continuing where Gray Rainbow Journey ends, Sackcloth Moon plunges the reader deeper into Dina’s dreams and spiritual conflicts. A love story as well as a mystery- suspense, the reader is taken down paths of the mysterious and mystical as Dina wavers between two faiths that oppose each other, and her love for two powerful and very different men. In Dina’s struggles to reconcile her Christian (Jesus Way) faith with the traditional Spiritual beliefs of her culture, author KB Schaller states, “The message of Dina’s new faith is the same, that of belief, repentance, love and forgiveness; the delivery of it within the pages of Sackcloth Moon, one must sort out as Dina struggles between two worlds, two systems of belief and the excruciating choices she must make.”
As one reader states, “Sackcloth Moon shows the yanking pressures Christianity places on Indian traditions and culture.”
