The girl who has been raped recently could have been more worried being near another man I think..Somehow her eagerness doesn't fit.

Interesting novel free from smashwords. Begins with a young female Indian being rescued from 3 braves by a white man. The braves were from another tribe.

They had beat and raped her after killing her mother. The girl followed the man to the home that he and his sister shared with their aunt. Unfortunately the sister takes a disliking to the girl.

The two end up married while only being able to speak a few words to each other. The jealous Sister Julia arranges for her kidnapping by the rapist but instead believes that her brother is killed. The Indian girl is rescued by her brother.

Immediately after her rescue the rapist tried again to kidnap her but she escapes by train. Living with others she doesn't know if her pregnancy is from the rape or her husband. Plans work out and she's returned to her tribe.

Sister Julia and aunt leave with her brother searching for both of them. Finally all are reunited and a big battle won. Lots of distance covered with several surprise twists. A enjoyable book.

I enjoyed this story although the interaction between the whites and the Indians were suprising considering racial prejudices with a couple of exceptions being Julia and when it was a male Indian. Perhaps these were more enlightened whites.

A very enjoyable read. Well written. But I was disappointed to find that this is basically a romance novel, Since it was listed in the Western category, I assumed it would be a western. Other than that, a well written novel overall.

Outstanding! I am an avid reader of Louis L'Amour, and have been for years. I can see the differences between him and this author. Different styles, but they are both truly great authors. This is the first of this Author's books that I have read.

I most effeminately will not be the last.
