The last thing a bride expects on her wedding day is for her husband-to-be to run off with another woman – especially one pregnant with his child.
Life has never been simple for Jennifer McBee. As if being shy and hard of hearing wasn’t enough, now Jennifer is faced with the humiliation of her failed wedding. Desperate to escape, Jennifer decides to leave heartbreak behind her and travels west to be with her brother, the pastor of a small Nebraska town called Daisy Creek. While her brother has hopes for her making some new friendships with the townsfolk of Daisy Creek, Jennifer still feels removed from the community of this close-knit town.
But, that all changes the day Jennifer joins her brother on his visit to the Lakota Indian camp – here she meets Akecheta, the eldest son of the Lakota chief. Akecheta is handsome – and only a little intimidating – but when Jennifer discovers the Lakota people also speak through hand signing, she is eager to accept Akecheta’s offer to teach her the language of his tribe.
With Akecheta and his people around her, Jennifer’s world suddenly seems brighter and full of possibilities – and she dares to hope that maybe she has found a place where she can be accepted at last.
But, as talk begins to arise about the chief’s son pairing with an outsider, Jennifer cannot help but wonder: Will the Lakota people ever truly welcome her as one of their own?
The Indian Warrior’s Deaf Bride is an uplifting romance where two worlds collide. Will Jennifer and Akecheta find a way to bring their worlds together? Or, will their fear of the future be enough to keep them apart?
