Morning Star Rising,  three-book series, Terri's current work in process

“After more than a decade, Little Feather’s vision becomes reality, 
but can she live with its revelation?”

Medicine Wheel (working title only): Abused and rejected, Little Feather finds comfort through an old medicine woman and the hope of her vision’s fulfillment. But when a white stranger arrives with his foreign god and her vision unfolds the results could tear her tribe and her heart in two.

Medicine Wheel is the first Native American Romance in the three book series Morning Star Rising. The second book, Urban Healer, features Little Feather’s daughter, Morning Star, as she tries to take the natural healing ways of her mother into an urban setting (Minneapolis) and discovers God has a plan far bigger than she imagined. The third, still untitled, book follows Morning Star’s son to Iowa where he is the pastor of a small congregation. Confronted by an activist from California who protests the farmers in his church, he becomes a bridge between the two and falls for the fiery environmentalist in the process.

The third book, Unnamed, in the Morning Star Rising series follows Morning Star's son to a farming community in Iowa. As he pastors a small church of mostly farmers he learns disturbing things about the way farmers treat the land God created. But God has taught him to tread lightly. He will love them and pray that God will lead them. All is going well until a fiery environmentalist from California arrives with reporters in hand to expose the situation. Can he continue to be passive about his beliefs with the farmers or his faith with this activist? And why is he so drawn to this unsaved naturalist?
