A Thousand Voices 

Booklist Review: Dell Jordan has spent the last two years after graduating from high school in Europe. Her adopted family has hopes of her going to Juilliard to study music, but Dell has reached an impasse. She needs to understand her past before she can envision her future. At 13, after living a life of poverty, she was adopted by Karen and James. She is raised with love in Kansas City, yet feels isolated, always thinking of herself as the odd one out with her Native American features. So she sets out to the Kiamichi Mountains of Oklahoma, where she was born, looking for her Choctaw roots. Arriving, by chance, during a festival, Dell finds what she was looking forpeople who look like her celebrating their rich cultural heritage, making her proud of who she is and the people she comes from. Wingate gives her readers a tender and compassionate conclusion to her Tending Roses stories, tying together the spiritual threads that connect all her characters and leaving the reader filled with hope.
