Between Earth and Sky
- By: Amanda Skenandore
- Narrated by: Emily Sutton-Smith
- Length: 11 hrs and 35 mins
In Amanda Skenandore's provocative and profoundly moving debut, set in the tragic intersection between white and Native American culture, a young girl learns about friendship, betrayal, and the sacrifices made in the name of belonging. Told in compelling narratives that alternate between Alma's childhood and her present life, Between Earth and Sky is a haunting and complex story of love and loss, as a quest for justice becomes a journey toward understanding and, ultimately, atonement.

Book Club Book for sure. It's written so that you feel a part of the story or sucked into felling like your there. A love story, historical data, with passion, heart break and smiles. It's not often I leave feed back but this book warrants the time. Loved the flash backs and being introduced to a very difficult part of Native American children's lives. Throughout the book I wondered how it would all end. I was very surprised of the ending and I found it surprising.
Read it - I'm so happy I did.
