Nicole | 10 comments read this within the last 5 years but i feel like it may have been a non new book at that point. I only vaguely remember the plot and it's driving me bonkers that i can't remember more! :) Can't for the life of me remember anyone's names. I know the hero was a soldier and they were at a fort for the majority of the book. There was a young boy, the son of a higher in command soldier who liked the hero a lot, and being jealous of the heroine, somehow convinces her to leave the safety of the fort in the middle of the night, possibly with the aid of a young native boy...? The hero finds out after the fact and then it gets dangerous with him trying to get her back to safety....And then i can't remember much else after that. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Who is the heroine's father or family? Is she a widow?
How and when did she arrive at the fort?


message 5: by Nicole (new)

Nicole | 10 comments To my rememberence, she's single and fairly young. I believe the hero brought her to the fort, possibly for safety reasons....?

Nicole | 10 comments Working my way through the list, looking for anything familiar. :) Thank you! I don't remember the war being a huge factor, just soldiers, and the fort. I'm not super helpful. Lol. I have toddlers. My brain is fried. :p

``Laurie (laurielynette) | 1039 comments I'll just throw Soldier Blue out there because it does involve a soldier and a girl trying to escape from Indians around the time you indicated in your query. I believe there was a '60's movie adapted from this book too so the book was well known in its time.
