The way Kody and Charlotte were introduced was a creative way and such a fun way. The author captured my heart from the very first page. As we slowly get to know these two and the pain they face, they become even more endearing. The two form a bond, reluctantly at first, and soon grow to love each other. But Kody is a half-breed and doesn't feel he belongs anywhere. He doesn't mind people's words toward him, but can't stand the way they treat those he loves.

I'll begin this review by saying I didn't expect to enjoy the book. I agreed to read it because I joined the Tell Harlequin group and I was given two books to read, this being one of them. I expected it to be dry and boring but I was unexpectedly pleased to find out just how wrong I was.

A solid piece of Christian Fiction. It felt like the struggles of the lead characters were in harmony with the time period and their emotions and reactions were realistic.

I'm not very fond of love stories, but this one actually made me tear up! It is splendidly written!

Linda Ford grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head—often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted ten and lived (at times, endured) the dream.

Writing first took her to non-fiction human-interest articles for newspapers and
