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

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.

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.
