“Not the Same Water is a fun read, full of twists and turns that keep the reader engaged and even gasping at times. Author Karen Black has created two wonderful characters, Bill and Becky, to carry her tale of prejudice, injustice, and downright unfairness toward both women and Native Americans at the time.” - Grant Leishman for Readers’ Favorite

Historical romances are an excellent option for anyone looking for a break from the modern world. These books are set in the past and always have a happy ending. One of the best things about this genre is the extensive historical research into creating the story. An excellent book of such genre is Karen Black’s “Not the Same Water,” a fast-paced historical romance novel set in the 1890s. It follows a progressive young woman’s struggle to become a trauma surgeon amid the backdrop of actual historical events.

Karen’s historical romance novel opened with the Sea Wings Disaster in July 1890 - the sinking of an excursion boat on Lake Pepin in the Mississippi River with the loss of 98 lives. The story addresses the “Indian problem” and culminates during the Spanish-American War in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 1898.

Becky Russell survives the Sea Wing Disaster with the help of Army Lieutenant Bill Cravats, who revitalizes her. Over the next three months, they fall in love. However, Bill is then reassigned to the 7th Cavalry in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, where he participates in the Battle of Wounded Knee. He is shot while trying to escape to get help from a box canyon called Bloody Pocket. The Army fails to find his body after a two-day search in a blizzard.

Becky pursues her dream of becoming a doctor. Despite being the top student, major hospitals refuse to accept her. Refusing to give up on her dreams, Becky embarks on a wild journey to achieve her goal, ultimately leading her to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba - and a surprise.

At its heart, “Not the Same Water” is a well-written book with an engaging plot and relatable characters. Its theme echoes timeless values and historical events, making it a compelling read for lovers of romance and history.
