Women's Fiction Historical
This compelling, centuries-spanning novel brilliantly
interweaves the lives of two women—a writer working in the
heart of modern academia and a daring young Sioux Indian on
an incredible journey in the eighteenth century. The result
is an unforgettable story of courage in the face of the
unknown.At the age of thirty-eight, Brigitte Nicholson has a
job she likes, a man she loves, and a book on the women’s
suffrage movement that she will finish—someday. Someday is
Brigitte’s watchword. Someday she and Ted, a rising star in
the field of archaeology, will clarify their relationship.
Someday she will have children. Someday she will stop
playing it so safe. Then, on a snowy day in Boston,
Brigitte’s life is jolted. Suddenly everything she counted
on has changed and she finds herself questioning every
choice she has made along the way. As she struggles to
regain her balance and plot a new course, Brigitte agrees to
help her mother on a family genealogy project. In Salt Lake
City at the Family History Library, she makes a stunning
discovery—reaching back to the French aristocracy. How did
Brigitte’s mysterious ancestor Wachiwi, a Dakota Sioux,
travel from the Great Plains to the French court of Louis
XVI and Marie Antoinette—and into the arms of a French
marquis? How did she come to marry into Brigitte’s family?
What is the truth behind the tantalizing clues in the
fragmented, centuries-old records? Following the threads of
Wachiwi’s life, Brigitte travels to South Dakota, then on to
Paris, irresistibly drawn to this brave young woman who
lived so long ago. And as she comes closer to solving the
puzzle of Wachiwi’s journey, her previously safe, quiet life
becomes an adventure of its own. A chance meeting with a
writer of historical fiction, a new opportunity, and a
difficult choice put Brigitte at last in the forefront of
her own story. With a complex and powerful family legacy
coming to life around her, someday is no longer in the
future. Instead, in Danielle Steel’s mesmerizing new novel,
someday is now. From the Hardcover edition.
