Change of Heart
ONE GIRL, BROKEN BY DEATH, HAUNTED BY HER PAST, LIFTED UP BY A HEALER.
After fighting with her sister, Spupaleena bolted from their Sinyekst lodge into the dead of winter. She didn’t know where she was going but knew she could no longer live at home. Haunted by the deaths of her mother and baby brother, she ran until she’d run too far.
Upon discovering Spupaleena’s body, Phillip Gardner, a trapper, brings her home to his cabin. His wife, Elizabeth, does her best to help heal Spupaleena, although with a broken heart and a mangled body, she is not likely to survive. But when Phillip doesn’t return from a trip into Hudson Bay’s Fort Colvile, a pregnant Elizabeth and a weak Spupaleena are forced to find strength in each other. In this story of hardship, grief, and eventual hope, Spupaleena learns all she needed was a change of heart.
