The large number of interviewees and suspects can be confusing; many appear only . Once again Jim Kelly’s very unconventional hero provides one of the best mysteries around in The Skeleton Man, a tale of perverted history. Dryden the journalist is tracking down another case in the Fens.

The large number of interviewees and suspects can be confusing; many appear only once or twice and their characters are vague, but they supply vital information for the careful armchair sleuth. Kelly's evocative descriptions of the flat and misty fenlands meander through a revealing look at the deterioration of contemporary village life under the stress of large-scale agriculture and rural depression.

Kelly made drawings and prints throughout his career, using plants and flowers as his primary source of inspiration. Like his paintings, his drawings tend to be relatively flat in perspective, but they are rarely abstract. he created very large-scale works, such as 1988’s ge, which is 18 feet long and might be one of the biggest lithographs ever made.

Windsong by Kelly Furtjetz opens in 1837 in Michigan in the United States. The back-story - Windsong, an Indian maid lives with the husband she was forced to marry, a young heir to the chief ship of a local tribe. He manages to do his husbandly duty before dying of small pox, leaving her alone and with child. Bear Dancer is the father-in-law, and he feels he must find a suitable husband for Windsong and a good father for her baby, Sky Warrior. Since his father died, this mean Sky Warrior will one day be the chief.

During the freezing Winter Bear Dancer journey's to Mackinac Island. There, he intends to report the death of his son to the Indian agent. Since the weather is so bitter, he thinks it best to leave Windsong and Sky Warrior on the island while he continues his father hunt. He leaves, promising to come back in the spring with a new husband for her. While staying on Mackinac Island, she meets Etienne Nicholet. Instant attraction flairs between the two. Nicholet is an Indian Scout and he arranges for Windsong and her son to stay at the same home where he rooms.

While things heat up between Windsong and Etienne, she knows her father-in-law will never accept this man for her husband. His grandson is to be chief, he needs to learn the ways of their people, and grow up in the traditions of his heritage as ruler of the tribe. She loves Etienne, but to marry him would mean she'd have to give her child to Bear Dancer to raise.

Oddly, the same small pox epidemic that killed Windsong's husband, also took many other fine braves, so Bear Dancer is not finding a man suitable to step into the role. Their laws do allow for a form of marriage, saying a man and woman may live together as if they were married for the summer. Come fall they must go their separate ways. Windsong seizes upon this chance to be with Etienne. She hopes when Bear Dancer sees what a wonderful man Etienne is, how he loves her, he will finally give his blessing to their union.

Ferjutz is meticulous in her period research, thoroughly weaving a tapestry of the Indian ways and White Man's ways, far beyond other authors of this genre. She paints with vivid colours their beliefs, prejudices and the power of love. The author doesn't give you stereotypes, but richly conceived characters and who come alive in this mesmerizing tale, that neither is preachy nor takes one "side". The chemistry between Etienne and Windsong nearly burns up the pages. I understand this is to be a series of books, and I for one cannot wait for the next one

Very highly recommended.
Despite the fact that romance novels sell big, they are frequently put down as fairy tales of a sort, fluff with not much in the way of redeeming literary value. Gorgeous boy and luscious girl meet, there's instant love and/or lust, but complications keep arising, first on one side, then on the other, until after a few hundred pages, love finally conquers. But judging by Kelly Ferjutz's Windsong, this is an attitude both unfortunate and inaccurate. Windsong is a fantasy, rather than a fairy tale, and like other artistic examples of fantasy, it provides the reader excellent insights into and understanding of particular problematic matters in human society.

Windsong takes place in Michigan in 1837. The title character is a beautiful Indian woman who, the year before, had been forced to marry the young chief-to-be of a local tribe, who managed to get her pregnant before he died of smallpox. As the story begins, Bear Dancer, the old chief and Windsong's father-in-law, has set out to find an acceptable new husband who will be a proper father to the two-month-old baby, Sky Warrior, next in line to be chief. But first, Bear Dancer and his entourage of advisors stop on Mackinac Island to report the death of his son to the Indian agent there, and given that it is January and freezing-cold, he leaves Windsong and Sky Warrior on Mackinac until spring, when he will presumably return with the new husband.

On Mackinac Island, Windsong meets young Etienne Nicolet, an Indian scout. Their exchange of glances probably melted snowbanks for miles around. Etienne engineers the situation so that Windsong and Sky Warrior get a room at Mrs. Haggerty's home, where he himself just happens to be staying. Under the sympathetic and not-too-watchful eye of Mrs. H, the romance blossoms. Etienne is as taken with Baby Sky as he is with Windsong.

But there are problems: Sky's new father must be able to teach the young chief-to-be his Indians ways and heritage, so Bear Dancer will never accept Etienne, a non-Indian, as a worthy husband and father. The second Catch-22 is that if Windsong does marry Etienne without the chief's approval, she must give up Sky to the tribe.

Fortunately, there's a temporary solution. Since smallpox has decimated the Indian population, Bear Dancer and his men are not able to find a suitable husband over the winter, and it will be a while before they can. And under Indian custom, any man and woman may live together as husband and wife during the summer, but must then separate at the Green Corn Ceremony in the fall. So, Etienne and Windsong go off with the tribe, she willing at least to have a few more months with Etienne, he determined to convince the chief and the tribe that he can be a proper husband to Windsong and father to Sky.

The story is suspenseful, but beyond that, Ferjutz's assiduous research (documented at the end of the book) presents a fascinating account of life in both white and Indian cultures in early nineteenth-century Michigan. Primary focus is on white-Indian relations, where Windsong and Etienne come to be excellent historical metaphors for their respective cultures. The information is presented beautifully through the rounded characters, as Ferjutz avoids the twin pitfalls of preachy didacticism and bias. The Indians do have plenty to complain about, regarding their treatment at the hands of whites, but clearly they themselves are far from free of prejudice, stubbornness, superstition, and downright reactionary behavior. Without giving away too much of the story, I'll say that the gradual understanding and acceptance of white customs by Indians, and vice versa, was a very satisfying aspect of the story.

I'd be remiss not to mention that Ferjutz writes terrific sex scenes - truly erotic, never clinical, or so sloppy that the reader feels a need to set down the book and wash his or her hands.

I was pleased to learn that Ferjutz intends to develop the story into a multigenerational saga. I'll look forward to following the exploits of these interesting and sympathetic people.
As an author who appreciates descriptions and the setting-in-its-time aspect of a story, I have nothing but praise for this book. Kelly Ferjutz has such feeling for her characters, and for the historic settings in which they move, that her passion exudes from every page. From the opening scene, where Etienne first sees the beautiful Indian woman, the Windsong of the title, the reader knows that the treat ahead will provoke the imagination to such an extent that everything will be seen as well as felt.

The research is awesome, and so accurate as to almost make one wonder if Ms Ferjutz had access to a secret library of detailed journals. For anyone wanting to know what nineteenth-century life was like on Michigan's Mackinac Island, this book is essential reading. For anyone wanting a rattling good historical novel, filled with sensuous love that battles against the odds, this book is essential reading.

Read, enjoy, and savor the delights you found between the pages. Then read it all over again. WINDSONG will always be a treat, and will always have new pleasures to impart, no matter how many times you delve into its wonders.

There is to be a sequel, called SECRET SHORES, which I know will satisfy readers' craving to know what happened next.
