This led to the term "Comanche Moon," during which the Comanche raided for horses, captives, and weapons.
A very well woven tale of revenge, hatred, hope and love. Set back during 1890's, Comanche people are infamous for their reputation. Savage natives who kidnapped white women for their revenge to those white men, who stolen their lands and ravished their women. "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
This is a very powerful novel. It portrays various emotions full of angst, grief and revenge. Catherine Anderson injects the reader with the importance of equality. I'm deeply moved by the words she used in her characters. The honesty and uniqueness of every characters were engraved in my soul.
I thoroughly embraced the passion of the hero, Hunter, a half Comanche and a white man. Being tortured by his past, he set himself to retaliate his family. With the knowledge of the Prophecy, he met his destiny at the world he came to hate...Loretta Simpson, an orphan after her parents were killed by the hands of Comanche. She still lived in her nightmare and never awoken from the tragedy she witnessed. The terror was still deep within herself that she cannot surpassed the idea of the warriors will return again. The fear inside her was so great that she can no longer able to speak a word. Despite the hatred between two worlds, they will find with each other the prophecy that will unite the opposite world together.
A great force will shattered their lives and will leave a mark for the next generation to see.
I love this book without comparison. I read this story last year and I can say that this novel imprinted within me. I realized when I look back every now and then to the days I read it (with great passion), I can still see myself on the scenes and plots like I'm really part of the story ~ that was the magic of Catherine Anderson. She can weave simple stories and turn it into a beautiful masterpiece. And this is truly a work of art.
I shall read it again in the future, and be in love all over again....more
First novel of SEP and her first historical too. :) I like the plot with resemblance of the novel Gone with the Wind and especially her hero & herFirst novel of SEP and her first historical too. :) I like the plot with resemblance of the novel Gone with the Wind and especially her hero & heroine. Worth trying, definitely a keeper. But I liked its first title "Risen Glory", it fits more perfectly than "Just Imagine". Well, just imagine. :D...more
After three and a half hours of reading this sweet, emotional and without a doubt, a heart warming novel by Mary Balogh... I'm mesmerized and enthrallAfter three and a half hours of reading this sweet, emotional and without a doubt, a heart warming novel by Mary Balogh... I'm mesmerized and enthralled once again with her witty stories.
I can't put the book down! I love how she webbed in a 200+ pages the twists and turns, and played it gracefully in a mellow and enchanting pace. I thought, with the length of the book, I will be disappointed but I still give it a try...and oh what luck I have to rummage on some old treasure box. I adored her heroine, Charity Duncan for her guts and witty and for also being a giver. A heroine that will surely can catch any mans heart.
It being not quite the thing to advertise in the London papers for a wife, Anthony Earheart ,Marquess of Staunton, eldest son and heir of the Duke of Withingsby , advertised instead for a governess.
Set around during regency era, positions and wealth was still a firm standards of the ton. Charity Duncan cannot escape the prejudicial mindset and ill tried to find a suitable job for the sake of her in-debt family. Her luck began on her 7th attempt to be a governess to Anthony Earheart's children...And thus, her life change irrevocably from then on.
With only small belongings, her morals, dignity and her pride. She was set to aflame the heart of Anthony in his lair, the Enfield. With a mind set only for revenge and hatred, they'll be take aback with their strong attraction to each other because neither of them were ready for a roller coaster fast ride of their emotions.
The book was definitely 'for keeps.' Recommended for those who admired sweet, innocent Cinderella love story....more

Well, this book ends it all. Started with a 16 years old girl Katniss Everdeen grew from being a sister to Prim at Hunger Games to being a Tribute with Peeta as her star-crossed lover during the game, then as a symbol of inspiration for hope by districts in their midst of darkness and thus, President Snow watched her carefully. Then, she came back again on the arena with Peeta and other victors for Quarter Quell. And lastly, her as a symbol of hope became real as she accepted her fate being a Mockingjay. Now, she ended to a guy she can't live or survive without.
This book is brutal to its extent. All characters I come to love were, one by one dead in front of my eyes as I read the letters of their name. So many death, blood, cries and pain - the product of war. And I can't barely control the pages I flipped to finally know the end. The terror I saw in her eyes were portrayed very vividly like I was with her in every step she took to execute her final mission on this Game. And I was very relieve that I already ended this series for if their is another book, I don't know if I can hold anymore the emotions and nightmares Katniss felt and saw.
Maybe without Peeta in her life, she can't survive her ordeal and maybe she will be forever alone in the dark. Once again, love conquers all, even the darkness and nightmares. And maybe, we can conclude that...
