Recommends it for: Romantic Western Fans
Recommended to Kathrynn by: Christel Combs
Excellent western set just after the Civil War ended. Some scenes were heart wrenching and several tears were shed reading this novel. This book had me on an emotional roller coaster ride: a lot of anger, sadness, joy, and more anger. The udder stupidity of people (AKA Human Beings) treating other people (AKA Human Beings) like dirt because of their culture and skin color(s). Ugh

There are Indian slaughters in this book and the rounding up of Indians to "herd" them to reservations. The abhorrent

I really, really liked this book!

SHe decides after having some dreams that she must find her Souix Band of Indians to reconnect with her adopted family and her son that she left behind after being "rescued" by the US Army.

Ridge Madoc, a former Army scout is hired to return Emma to her white family. Ridge is alos ostracized by people because of bei
Finding diamonds in the rough.

A woman shunned for her time living with the Lakota & an illiterate man barely tolerated because of white trash parents+step dad & the job of his brash youth. Both were underestimated & undervalued. Together they find acceptance, tackle insurmountable problems and get results.

I love the characters, enjoyed their playfulness, felt the rage & morning. It was interesting contrast two cultures perspective on difference.

Writing is really good. I like McKade's style.

But this is the typical kind of mother looking for child story that I just don't have the stomach for. All that "I am his mother" arguments really annoyed me. Sorry, mother heroines are just not my cup of tea.

15-year-old Emma fell into a raging river and was rescued by an Indian, taken to live in their village. Seven years later she is "rescued" by the army and taken back home to her family. Her family have a hard time dealing with what she went through. The townspeople think she should have killed herself before living with the savages. Not being able to handle how she is being treated by her family, she begins a journey back to the tribe to retrieve something very important that she left behind. A ...more

To Find You Again

5/5 stars

Please note: This is a historical romance and at the time racism was towards Native Americans was unfortunately the norm, which was manifested blatantly and openly via words and actions.

Emma Hartwell has been rescued from living with a band of the Lakota Sioux for the last seven years; during a massacre by Army soldiers. But instead of feeling relieved, she is heartbroken. She has kept the secrets of the life she led while with the Indians. She had bee

My favorite romance includes a strong male hero and a heroine who is not weak. The hero and heroine are good for one another and their story is believable. This book has it all, except for a good epilogue.
This book has all my favorite things:
- That strong, brave, tortured hero
- That strong, brave heroine
- Cute kid
- Secondary characters that fuel the romance and do not overpower the story
- A romance where the two lovers turn into goo over each other and that mountain cabin where it all comes tog

Maureen McKade reates a believeable setting populated with characters you like. Emma, Ridge, Colt, the Indian family, the family of origin all work well in the plot and and are well drawn. The love story is set in the West following the Civil War., one of my favorite time periods.

this book tackles prejudices and dyslexia and handles the topics well.

The book is set after the Civil War whenthe country turns to the West and the displacement of the Indians really begins. Emma Hartwell fell into a river and was rescued by the Lakota Indians. They take her in as one of theirs. She marries a brave and has a child. The calvary comes in and massacres the village and she is wounded. Recognized as a white, she is taken home where the townspeople and her family don't know how to rea

Not one of my favorite westerns. It was OK, but I couldn't really connect with the characters, and I found myself simply not caring what happened to any of them.
