Marble, NC, September 18, 2014 -- Word Branch Publishing’s owner, Catherine Rayburn-Trobaugh says, “We are excited to get the opportunity to work with Terrie and to publish 4-Ever-in-My Heart. And we are also excited to be able to offer readers a free download of traditional Native flute music to listen to while reading.” The MP3 download of Native American Music Award winner, Randy McGinnis’, Dance of the Spirits is available for a limited time with the purchase of either the electronic or paper editions of the book.
Drawing on her extensive knowledge of Lakota culture and the complex relationship with other Americans, McClay weaves a story of intense love, deep-seated hatred, long-standing prejudice and ethereal spirituality. Since 1995, her interest has been focused on the traditions and history of the Lakota, and she has made numerous trips out West and to Canada to do extensive research for her books. 4-Ever-in-My Heart was inspired by many of her own person experiences, working with horses as an equine midwife, volunteering with the BFC (Buffalo Field Campaign) and her spiritual Native American studies.
The novel centers around a somewhat reclusive rancher, Lorena Brinton, who, above all, loves horses. She has committed her days to breeding and raising them, but her life is about to become very complicated when she inherits her grandpa’s horse ranch in Montana. While exploring an old trunk in the attic, Lorena learns about her true heritage and is captivated by an old photograph and journal that she discovers. She begins dreaming of a young warrior and is both fascinated and frightened when her dreams take an unusual turn, and she starts to see a mysterious young brave sitting on the back of a black and white paint horse.
Things get even more complicated when her dreams literally come true in the form of Sky Hunter, a handsome and troubled Lakota man with whom she has had a mysterious connection even before they actually meet. Sky, who is depressed, unemployed, drinks too much and is haunted by his own demons, has been having his own dreams and visions, and his heart leads him on a course that will change his and Lorena’s lives forever.
