Whispers Among the Prairie: American West Conflicts takes readers on an adventure into the American West while shining a light on the Southern Cheyenne tribes.

Whispers Among The Prairie by Michelle Roberts is a groundbreaking historical romance novel that gives readers insight into the way of life of the Cheyenne Indians during the Washita and Sand Creek battles. Set in the 1860s, the book brings the plains of the American West to life with passion, conflict, adventure and loyalty. A deadly struggle erupts between the Cheyenne Indians and American settlers as the native tribes wished to continue living in freedom, while the American settlers sought to take control of their land. 

My purpose is to shine light on Native American history, particularly the Southern Cheyenne that are featured in the book and to open people’s minds on how they respected what was all around them,” says author Michelle Roberts. A multi-award-winning writer, Roberts’ inspiration for writing the book was to showcase the harrowing reality of the past, to remind readers about the importance of learning from our mistakes in looking forward. “My goal is for readers to learn about real life events that have happened in the past as I have always believed we can learn from the past and make things better for our future.” 

The book follows Chief Black Kettle and his adopted daughter, Morning Dove. Together, they work to try to keep the peace as American settlers travel west, wanting to establish ranches, towns, and farms. Their goal is to protect their people from the needless bloodshed that other tribes are experiencing during this era. Clinton McKay, a veteran of the Civil War, re-enlists in the cavalry and crosses paths with Morning Dove. The pair soon develop feelings for one another but fight against them, knowing society wouldn’t allow them to be together, as they are on opposite sides of a war.

The book weaves together several standout features that put it in a class of its own. Roberts’ writing is smooth and eloquent, with descriptive imagery that will capture a reader’s imagination. The heroine, Morning Dove, is a compelling role model that readers will look up to and be inspired by. In addition, themes of war, discrimination, freedom, and female empowerment tie the work together in a memorable way, showing that no matter where we are in life, true love has no boundaries. 

Whispers Among the Prairie has received positive reviews from some of the most well-renowned literary organizations, authors, and reviewers around the world. Deborah Lloyd writes, “This book engages the reader from the first page to the last. In Whispers Among the Prairie, a cataclysmic decade in US history is unforgettably portrayed.” In addition, Maincrest Media writes, “If you’re a fan of Dances With Wolves this engaging historical romance is a must read.” 

Whispers Among the Prairie: American West Conflict won the 2019 Book Excellence Award in the Western category, a Maincrest Media Book Award, and a Bronze Readers’ Favorite Book Award for historical fiction. It is currently available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.
