This is a good story, ties in with the first of her books The Fugitive Heart. Takes a look at the other members of the storyline in that first book. Very easy to read, this one took me longer than most but it wasn't due to the storyline, it was due to numerous trips to hospital & doctors with my Father. I will have to look to see if this author has any other books that go in the historical romance genre.

An excellent Christian historical fiction/romance. The story works through several issues of the time period: Indian/white relationships/prejudices; inequality of the sexes as fostered by interpretation of Scripture; rape, illegitimacy, guilt; punishment, retribution, revenge versus love, mercy and grace; and the role of forgiveness in the healing of a wounded heart to list a few.

Would have loved to finish this with 4 or 4.5 stars, but she ruined the ending with hear zeal to preach forgiveness to our enemies, & didn't give us a satisfying end to the romance. The rest of the book was so good - excellent characters and story, but she needed a more realistic end.
