Tells the joined stories of two girls separted by five generations in the same house. In 1856, Beatrice Alexander has just returned to her home on the Red River, in what is now Manitoba. As her father's new wife drives a wedge between her and Papa, Beatrice can only be sure of the comfort of her beloved Cree grandmother, relegated to a room upstairs. Cass, whose father has remarried a woman who is cold and distant feels the same long winter shadows pressing in on her. Miraculously, when Cass discovers the star brooch belonging to Beatrice, her visions lead her to Beatrice's diary. Is she really able to communicate with Beatrice across time, or is it all in her imagination?

"Good." - Blind Date With a Book 2015 comment

A good read with Canadian historical elements of life on the prairies in the 1850's seamlessly intertwined with life of a prairie girl of the present day. They are linked, begin to communicate and even help one another when the present day, Cass, finds a brooch lost by Beatrice in the 1850's.
