Benedict and Nancy Freedman live outside San Francisco, and are at work on more sequels that take the characters of Mrs. Mike into the present.From Booklist:
More than 50 years after the popular Mrs. Mike, the third in the series focuses on Mrs. Mike's granddaughter, Kathy, who was born to a Cree mother and an Austrian soldier who separated shortly after her birth. The saga traces Kathy's journey from western Canada to Minnesota, Chicago, New York, and Montreal as she follows her dream of singing the Cree songs she learned from her mother and Elk Woman, her beloved mentor. Kathy's mother dies when she is but 17. She then abruptly marries a con artist, one of several hasty decisions, including giving her newborn daughter to their childless landlords because her ne'er-do-well husband convinces her it's for the best. Kathy experiences huge success, rejection, the loss of a lover, and finally devastating illness but never loses her love for singing. "I sang the years, I sang death, I sang rebirth, I sang it all," she tells herself. The Freedmans present a moving family saga and a paean to Native American values, nicely linking their three decades-spanning novels. Deborah Donovan
