On Tour 06/22/23-07/30/23 “The River Remembers” by Linda Ulleseit

Release Date: June 27, 2023

About The Book:

Samantha Lockwood, Day Sets, and Harriet Robinson come to Fort Snelling from very different backgrounds. It’s 1835 and the world is changing, fast, and they are all struggling to keep up. After she refuses another suitor he’s chosen for her, Samantha’s father banishes her to live in the territory with her brother. He, too, tries to take over her marriage plans—but she is determined to find her own husband, even when her choices go awry.

Day Sets demands that her white husband create a school to educate their daughter, supporting her father’s belief that his people must learn the ways of the white man in order to ensure the tribe’s future. Until events prove her father wrong.

Harriet’s life in the territory is more like that of a free person than anywhere she’s lived. She even falls in love with Dred Scott and dreams of a life with him. But they are both enslaved, and she keeps being reminded of how little control she has over her own fate.

As their cultures collide, each of these three women must find a way to direct her own future and leave a legacy for her children.

Book Blurbs: 

“Storyteller Linda Ulleseit shares a fabulous account of frontier women —white, Native and black —in a variety of social statuses, tenderly conveyed. Taken from actual histories, each woman seeks independence and thinks she is willing to endure the consequences. Linda brings to life the Prairies of Michigan Territory and the emotional demands on lives changing day by day. I read well into the night and didn’t want to let these women go! Neither will readers everywhere.” ~Jane Kirkpatrick. NY Times best selling author of The Healing of Natalie Curtis. 

“The River Remembers follows the intertwining histories and intersecting cultures of three young women — Day Sets, Harriett Robinson and Samantha Lockwood — on the prairie. Ulleseit’s powerful storytelling enlightens readers to the compelling women who have been missing from our history books for far too long. A captivating and worthwhile read for all fans of historical fiction.”  ~Samantha Specks, award-winning author of Dovetails in Tall Grass

“In this richly layered story, three women: a white settler, a slave, and a Dakota, seek their own desire for the freedom to be who they want to be. The River Remembers is a refreshing look at pre-Civil War America with well-known historical figures weaving in and out.” ~J.L Oakley, award-winning author of The Jøssing Affair and The Quisling Factor.
