Author(s): Mark Wildyr
A sequel to his debut novel Cut Hand (STARbooks, 2010), Mark Wildyr's River Otter tells the story of a survivor of the mass slaughter of his people and the major in the army that killed them. As the war begins to wind down, Otter leaves the only home he has ever known to help Major James Morrow build a farm north of the fort. As his physical attraction for the blonde soldier slowly grows into a love perilous for both of them, Otter is distracted by personal challenges. Set in the the plains of post-Civil War America, this is a grand, sweeping tale of passion, love and honour.
