This was an amazing story. I couldn't put the book down and I didn't want it to end.

This was one of the few " adult romance novels" that I read in my late teens. Looking back, there are a few cheesy love scenes, but other than that, this was very well written and had a fantastic plot weaved into historical happenings. This book was also like 500+ pages.

Omg it was not a disappointment to read that's for sure. I really enjoyed this book. Torch and Gyva really belong with each other. I was in wow in what all Gyva went through in her life. I laughed and I cried with her when the Choctaw tribe burned down Harrisville, I bawled for her she lost so much that night. It is definitely worth the read.

I love this book! This is the fourth time I have read it and I will probably read it again. It is the true story of a half-Chickasaw and half-white woman during the time of Andrew Jackson. Great plot and good telling of history.
