Hometown Girl and Popular Author Returns for Spirit of Vincennes Rendezvous

Jamie Carie will sign copies of Wind Dancer with a quill and ink

(Indianapolis, IN) Award-winning author Jamie Carie fell in love with history in Vincennes, IN. As a grade-school student, she learned of George Rogers Clark’s tale of fortitude and was taught to have pride in her city. That pride shows in her recent book Wind Dancer, which is set in Vincennes, circa 1778.

Jamie returns to her hometown for the Spirit of Vincennes Rendezvous May 23-24. She will dress in period clothing and sign copies of her book with a quill and ink on the grounds of the George Rogers Clark National Park.

Reviewers praise Carie’s writing and strong characters. One online reviewer said, “Wind Dancer is a book with characters that leap from the pages and reach into the deepest recesses of your heart and mind. . . . I am still reeling from the pure satisfaction of this novel! She brought pre-Revolutionary War America and its vast frontiers to life vividly and completely.”

About the Book:

Times are turbulent during the American Revolution, and no less heaving for the scattered folks eking out a living on the other side of the Appalachian Mountains. Isabelle is bursting with purpose, but she doesn’t understand the cost, the terror that will befall her in finding it. Samuel Holt is a guardian, one of the famed and feared Long Knives. He is busy protecting and providing for the scattered forts, keeping his scalp attached with finely honed skills in weaponry, stealth, and cunning. When war becomes imminent, Samuel joins his friend, George Rogers Clark, in taking the British-held forts along the great Ohio River. Samuel didn’t plan on a woman of his own ever again; but then he never imagined a raven-haired woman who dances in the wind.

About the Author:

She is the author of three books: Snow Angel (USA "Best Books" Award and ForeWord Book of the Year Award); The Duchess and the Dragon; and Wind Dancer. Her fourth book, Love's First Light, is scheduled for a June 1 release. Jamie lives in Indianapolis with her husband and three boys and a giant dog named Leo.

I've read little about the Revolutionary War. This is one way to do so. It's how I love to learn history--through a novel.
