'Two young sisters are taken from their home and family. Powerless to change their fortunes, they are separated, and each put into different foster homes. Yet over the years, the bond between them grows. As they each make their way in a society that is, at times, indifferent, hostile, and violent, one embraces her Métis identity, while the other tries to leave it behind. In the end, out of tragedy, comes an unexpected legacy of triumph and reclamation."

A wonderful story and very heart breaking. I have read this book many times and had to read it again. I read this once in Highschool and then used it in College as a book report for a assignment. It is one book that could and will be continued to be re-read. Pick it up and see what I am talking about.
