“…a heartbreaking story about the destructive legacy of the forced assimilation of Native American children. Historical fiction readers and book discussion groups will find much to ponder here.”                                                                                                                                                                                                —Library Journal

“Gripping and beautifully written, Between Earth and Sky tugs at the heart with its dynamic heroine and unique cast of characters. Though this novel brings alive two historical American eras and settings, the story is achingly modern, universal and important.”
—Karen Harper, New York Times bestselling author of The It Girls

“A beautifully written debut, Between Earth and Sky is an eye-opening reminder of the United States’s attempt to assimilate and oppress Native Americans by stripping them of their identity and culture, and the tragic aftermath that left them lost between two worlds. This novel is, by turns, brilliant, heartbreaking, and haunting. I wish I had written it!”                                                                                                                                                                                         —Ellen Marie Wiseman,  author of The Life She was Given

“A masterfully written novel about the heart-wrenching clash of two American cultures . . . a fresh and astonishing debut.”
—V.S. Alexander, author of The Magdalen Girls and The Taster

“A sweeping tale of courage, friendship, and love, Between Earth and Sky held me spellbound. This engrossing novel transports the reader to frontier America, amid the tensions between the White Man, the Natives, and those who longed to bridge the gap in understanding and compassion. Skenandore doesn’t miss a beat—her elegant prose sings, Alma and Harry’s story mesmerizes, and the evocative setting feels all too real. I adored this book!”
—Heather Webb, author of Last Christmas in Paris: A Novel of WWI
