Wildcat's Hunger (Paperback)
When Wildcat saw Mourning Dove for the first time, he knew she was the woman he wanted as his wife. The fact that she had a son and a daughter were only an added bonus, as Wildcat had always adored children. Mourning Dove did not think her past would allow someone like Wildcat to love her. Her rejection only sent him to the village that banished her seven winters earlier in search of the truth. Within the village of Mourning Dove's birth, Wildcat suffers a life threatening injury as he searches for the reason for her rejection. Even though Mourning Dove knows she is putting her own life in jeopardy, she rushes to Wildcat's side to nurse him back to health. As she does, she is forced to reveal the truth about her first husband's banishment. In doing so, she changes the entire make up of the village of her birth.
Mild Mannered receptionist, wife, mother and grandmother by day, Sherry Derr-Wille spends her nights writing and writing and writing. Having been inspired by an English assignment in her sophomore year of high school, she had never quite finished the assignment. New stories pop into her head every day with never enough time to write them all. A Wisconsin native, she grew up a country girl, but enjoys her "city" home. She and her husband of forty years, Bob, live in a mid-sized town close to the Illinois border, where she works as a receptionist for a local new car dealership and he is a bookkeeper for a propane company just a few miles up the road. Deeming Bob "A Saint" for putting up with her, she has never regretted marrying her high school sweetheart just two days after graduation in 1964.
