"An author without peer!" -- -- Tami Hoag --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

About the Author

Born in Virginia and raised in New England, bestselling author Kathleen Eagle set aside a gratifying seventeen-year teaching career on a North Dakota Indian reservation to become a full-time novelist. The Lakota Sioux heritage of her husband -- and thus of their three children -- has inspired many of her stories.

Among her other honors, she has received a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times, the Midwest Fiction Writer of the Year Award, and Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award. Library Journal named The Night Remembers one of the five best romances of the year.

With more than thirty books in print, Kathleen takes great pleasure in reading letters from readers who tell her that her books have tugged at their heartstrings, entertained, inspired, and even enlightened them.

You may write to her c/o Midwest Fiction Writers, P.O. Box 24107, Edina, MN 55424-0107

More About the Author

Kathleen Eagle published her first book, a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award winner, with Silhouette Books in 1984. Since then she has published more than 40 books, including historical and contemporary, series and single title, earning her nearly every award in the industry. Her books have consistently appeared on regional and national bestseller lists, including the USA Today list and the New York Times extended bestseller list.

Born in Virginia and raised "on the road" as an Air Force brat, Ms Eagle earned degrees from Mount Holyoke College and Northern State University. She taught at Standing Rock High School in North Dakota for 17 years.

Eagle's work is often singled out by book reviewers for its exceptional quality and appeal. THE NIGHT REMEMBERS was a Chicago Tribune Notable Book. SUNRISE SONG, THE NIGHT REMEMBERS, THE LAST TRUE COWBOY, and WHAT THE HEART KNOWS made the Library Journal "Five Best Romances of the Year" list. BookPage listed WHAT THE HEART KNOWS among its "Top Six Romance Picks" for 1999. THE LAST GOOD MAN was a finalist for the 2000 Minnesota Book Award for Popular Fiction--the only Romance so honored thus far. YOU NEVER CAN TELL was named to RWA's "Top Ten Favorite Books of the Year" list. She is an RWA RITA award winner.

Kathleen Eagle lives in Minnesota with her husband, who is Lakota Sioux. The Eagles have three children and three grandchildren.

Sunrise Song has to be one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read.
Joan Wilden
Most of her work has at least an aspect of our sad history of relations between the Native Americans and European Americans.
Margaret Aguilar
I have read all of her books I can get my hands on and can only hope for more, more, more.

Once in a great while, a book comes along that is so intelligent, so
riveting, so utterly flawless that it should be required reading for every
romance reader on the planet.

This is such a book.

Kathleen Eagle has used her considerable writing talent to craft a superb
tale of family ties, betrayal, and redeeming love. And she has chosen an
unusual format in which to do it -- a frame story within a fictionalized
account of a little-known incident in American history, concerning an asylum
for insane Indians in South Dakota.

The book contains two romances whose consequences are intertwined. One
concerns Michelle Benedict, a teacher with an interest in Indian history,
and Zane Lone Bull, a Vietnam vet and ex-con searching for his brother's
murderer. The time is 1973.

The other concerns Rachael Trainor, a dedicated nurse, and Adam Lone Bull,
an inmate at the Hiawatha Asylum for Insane Indians. This story takes place
in 1933. These two stories are told together, intermixed throughout the novel.

Eagle never tries to hide the connections between these characters. We're
not long into the story when we know Adam and Rachael were Zane's parents,
unknown to him. We know Zane's Uncle Martin was an inmate at the asylum,
where he was the victim of unspeakable brutality. We know Michelle is Zane's
hope for the future, and their love can finally bring meaning to his life
and an understanding of his past.

These are honest, flawed, wonderful people. We rejoice with Zane when he
finds this loving woman, and they quickly realize they are right for each
other.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I haven't been disappointed in an Eagle book yet, and "Sunrise Song" lived up to my 5-star expectations again. Eagle weaves together past and present to create an unforgettable and poignant story of courage and love in the face of insurmountable obstacles. The descriptions of the events which take place in the Assylum for Insane Indians, though fascinating and educational, is profoundly sad, which may be unsettling to some readers. I turn the last page of an Eagle book with regret (that the story is over) but also with the deep satisfaction of a thoroughly good read and the feeling that I have learned a great deal about American Indian History. The fluidity of Eagle's writing is a pleasure to read, and no detail seems forced or extraneous - never a dull moment.

I've never been moved enough to review a book, but this one moved me beyond words. The story(ies) were eloquent, touching and kept be reading into the wee hours. I found the characters so finely developed that I found myself fighting and furious.
Adam and Rachael brought such poignancy to the story that I found myself frustrated for them, therefore rooting for Zane and Michelle. The way the story paralleled the two relationships back and forth was done with such finesse that I never missed a beat. Normally, going back in time can be frustrating to a story and sometimes distracting, yet this story brought forth such emotion I'm surprised too that it isn't on someones best seller list.

This is not so much a review as it is a rebuttal to "A reader from Chicago, IL".
You said Sunrise Song was a depressing read and the characters were one dimensional. I hope no one judges Kathleen Eagles books based on what you say.
Sunrise Song has to be one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read. Buy this book for an uplifting experience, and then, buy her other books; you won't be disappointed.
Kathleen Eagle books are meant for those of us who appreciate life and love.
God bless you, Kathleen Eagle

Kathleen Eagle is truly a gifted writer! She was able to weave her characters in and out of different time periods without losing you. The story is about how strong American Indians have had to be in order to preserve their heritage. It will make you cry and touch you in a way that you will never forget!

Kathleen Eagle has outdone herself in this amazing love story/mystery/historical novel. While I'm an avid reader of Eagle's work - this is the first time I've ever read one of her books in one sitting. I simply couldn't put it down. Nothing could get me to put this book down until I'd turned the last page 8 hours after I bought it.
While I've usually bought Kathleen Eagle's books because she often writes of American Indian history and culture - she truly captured my attention and my admiration for her ability to tell a story filled with tragedy, triumph and love.

This wonderful book had me in tears as I read. The writing is so fine that I'm surprised that it was not on someone's best-seller list. Switching between past and present is sometimes awkward and annoying to a reader, but Ms. Eagle gives equal emotional truth to both. I have read all of her books I can get my hands on and can only hope for more, more, more. It is, however, a testament to her talent that she is not churning out book after book based upon the same characters some writers develop in the first book of a "series" and in later books just put them in different situations. Ms. Eagle creates original, memorable characters in each story.
