About the Book

On June 25, 1876, Sioux and Cheyenne warriors killed more than two hundred members of the Seventh Cavalry led by General George Armstrong Custer.  Outnumbered by more than four to one, the solders fought valiantly in what is now know as the Battle of the Little Bighorn and Custer’s Last Stand.  Sharing the General’s fate were his nephew, his brother-in-law, and his brothers Tome and Boston.  Little is know of the youngest brother, and Diane Gustafson has created for him a fictional fiancée.  This is Rose Chaplin’s story: her love for Boston, her grief when he died, and her courage to love again.  It is also a record of a woman’s spiritual journey as she tries to find God’s plan for her life.
