This was marketed as a Romance when it was first published in 1985 but it is actually a gritty, dour Woman's Fiction about Hannah's will to survive.

Hannah is an officer's wife who is abducted by Apache Indians. The book follows Hannah's several months in captivity in sad detail while her husband enjoys having an affair with a servant instead of looking for her. When she is rescued, she, of course, faces prejudice for having wanted to live, even as a dirty "squaw" rather than embracing death bef

O Orgulho de Hannah.
Janet Dailey.
4.° edição.

Fico impressionada que Hannah tenha sobrevivido a tudo que passou: seqüestro, escravidão, fome, frio e abuso sexual. E quando é resgatada, pensa que o sofrimento acabou e que as pessoas ficariam orgulhosas de sua coragem e capacidade de sobreviver.

Depois de tudo, ela achou que seria acarinhada e recebida de braços aberto pelo marido e amigos.

Doce engano, não, não...

O marido, um bastado egoísta, a repudiou miseravelmente. E os vizinhos e amigos, ta

Hannah is captured by indians and is enslaved by them for close to a year. When she is freed you would think that her ordeal is behind her and she can begin the healing process.

However, society cannot understand how this woman can hold her head up with pride after she has been soiled by the indians and why she didn't kill herself. Instead of sympathy, kindness, a shoulder to lean on, someone to talk to she is shunned by the other women and becomes a subject of malicious gossip.
Sandy Carmichael
Good read about the old west, white woman captured by Apaches, her survival and then return to "white Culture" which rejects her. She manages to stand tall and tells them all to go to hell, more or less.

Well-written but depressing. This should not be considered a romance. I thought it was, but boy was I wrong.

Since I don't have a book to read currently, I am back to one of my old favorites. I read it first back in 1990 and I still love reading it.
