Book Description

Something is protesting Dina Youngblood's decisions... and with a vengeance.

Three years after her tumultuous relationship with the handsome, bewitching Marty Osceola ends, Dina Youngblood strikes out on her first solo trip away from the Rez. A Jesus Way follower, she's determined to become a missionary to other Native Indians in Broken Bow. Perhaps, while there, she can also find a way to atone for the deep pain she caused Pastor Aaron Burning Rain, whom she rejected for Marty's love.

But as she makes her way toward Broken Bow, with only her cat, Eddie Was, as a companion, the forces of Darkness conspire against her. Is what happens next a dream, a nightmare, or reality? Dina doesn't know, but she's about to find out...

Sequel to "Gray Rainbow Journey"

A unique coming-of-age novel about the stunning consequences of choices, presented through Native eyes.

"Illuminating, thrilling, riveting, this piece of artistry will leave a lasting impression on all its readers." -J. Waugh, President, Christians in Action International Network

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth your reading time May 2, 2012
Having been familiar with K.B. Schaller's splendid writing for many years, I expected to discover a good tale told well. (K.B. is a multi-time award-winning writer in the Writers-Editors Network International Writing Competition.) "Journey by the Sackcloth Moon" does not disappoint. The author weaves dreams, romance, tradition and conflict into a story tapestry that keeps the pages turning -- with the added spice of a bit of mystery in each chapter. Who doesn't love a story that is both entertaining and worth reading for its insights! Reading "Journey by the Sackcloth Moon" by K.B. Schaller is definitely worth your time. You will be rewarded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of mystery June 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A demonic truck driver, a missing cat, a canvas bag, spiked punch--all are part of the mystery in K.B. Schaller's latest novel. The story is rich in cultural conflict as Dina Youngblood once again is torn between her love for the traditional Indian world of Marty and the Jesus Way of Aaron. Dina is surrounded by people on her journey--but who is friend and who is foe? Part romance, part paranormal, part Christian message, Journey by the Sackcloth Moon combines many elements into a fast-moving story.

Journey by the Sackcloth Moon introduced me to a new world, the world of Native American culture and spirituality. Young Christian Cherokee/Seminole Dina Youngblood, Pastor Aaron Burning Rain and Marty Osceola are a romantic triangle caught in a web of deceit and deep spiritual conflict. The verse that kept coming to me over and over again was Ephesians 6:11-12 "Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." This battle is portrayed in a way I have personally not read or experienced. K. B. Shaller knows the culture and the struggles of being a follower of "The Jesus Way" in Native American culture. Her book is filled with very real characters, some very manipulative and troubling,others rich and uplifting. Mama Hat is one of my favorites. Her warning to Dina, "Don't dance too close to the fire," hit home in my spirit.
The Christian characters in this book are very real and imperfect, sometimes making choices that lead to more difficulties, like the people I know and love, like the person I am, imperfect, fallen, forgiven and seeking to grow.

Journey by the Sackcloth Moon is an intriguing, sometimes troubling, and ultimately rewarding novel. You will not be disappointed.

Conflict and struggle form the literary mortar that keeps readers of modern fiction entranced. Inner turmoil is common enough fodder for conflict, but rarely does an author examine the mystery and mysticism of the endless psychic battles of being one's self from a Native American and Christian perspective.
In Gray Rainbow Journey, author KB Schaller introduced the mesmerizing plight of Dina Youngblood, a young Seminole/Cherokee woman who struggles at once with dreams and demons, romance and religion, tradition and transition. Dina and her adventures blossom in Schaller's sequel, Journey by the Sackcloth Moon.
Continuing where Gray Rainbow ended, Sackcloth Moon plunges the reader deeper into Dina's dreams and spiritual conflicts as the very human and down-to-earth Dina finds new ways to delight with wit and sass. Schaller deftly hooks the mysterious and mystical to the message of Christianity. She uses the same agility in showing the yanking pressures Christianity puts on Indian tradition and culture.
Message aside, the story is fun to read--it intrigues and holds the reader's attention. The characters are vivid; they show whimsy and depth. Journey by the Sackcloth Moon firmly roots Dina Youngblood as a memorable literary character with, one can only hope, more adventures to share.
--Carolyn G. Kingcade, Journalism Lecturer, Southern Illinois University Carbondale
