Preorder a Signed Copy of Even As We Breathe by Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle

Even As We Breathe: a debut novel set in WWII-era Cherokee and Asheville.

On-sale 9/8/20

Two young Cherokees find companionship with each other while working at the Grove Park Inn.  With World War II raging in Europe, the resort is the temporary home of Axis diplomats and their families, who are being held as prisoners of war. A secret room becomes a place where Cowney and Essie can escape the white world of the inn and imagine their futures free of the shadows of their families' pasts. Outside of this refuge, however, racism and prejudice are never far behind, and when the daughter of one of the residents goes missing, Cowney finds himself accused of abduction and murder. Even As We Breathe invokes the elements of bone, blood, and flesh as Cowney navigates difficult social, cultural, and ethnic divides.
