5.0 out of 5 stars Great story February 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could not put the book down! A great love story that pulls you in and are sad to see it end. Set in the western days, about a girl who's dreams become the truth. She is engaged to a man that wishes to own her and if she does not marry him, he will destroy her family. The only one who can save her is a dark skin Indian who is more than he seems.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Authentic Backdrop for 1800’s Love February 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Set in the late 1800’s this is a story that captures your heart and makes you crave for more making you unsure whether to cry or laugh with the strength of the story. A strong female lead in that era is made believable due to the talented writing of Ms Woster. She is blackmailed into an engagement with a man she doesn’t love, for the love of her family, yet fights him all the way. Her soulmate she meets through visions that she does not understand. He comes to her as his spirit animal then himself even though they have not yet met. She originally fears him until he helps her understand the meaning behind the visions. Along her journey from her home to her destination she loses so much yet becomes all the stronger for it and gets the happily ever after she so deserved after the tragedies that she has endured. I also adore the Native American aspect of the story, the authenticity and fusion between whites and Indians. I so missed reading my loved Native American historical novels and although this storyline featured so much more, I sure was not disappointed and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who loves a good book with a great storyline

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! March 5, 2013

Barbara Woster has a style of writing that blends reality and grit with romance. The pace is never dull and I enjoyed the interweaving of two cultures, especially with Shaman prophesy and dreaming. As a love story it truly delivered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy romantic novel April 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an easy read that was a romanticized story of the old west with a bit of mysticism thrown in. It was great in that it did not lump all native Americans together but treated them as separate tribes with varying traits and characteristics. I especially liked that the author treated all people as individuals. There were good and bad white people as well as good and bad native Americans. I would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreaming is believing... April 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Christina never thought that her dreams speak the truth.. The man who comes from a different culture knew her more from her own relatives.. It's a wonderful story about the journey of this young beautiful lady that sees herself transformed into a woman that will lead her new loved ones into a new life far away from fear..

4.0 out of 5 stars You get your money's worth with this saga June 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dreamer of Destiny
This is almost two books in one. It starts out being about a young woman who is betrothed to a man she despises. Then a fascinating account of her family's journal west on a wagon train. It details the hardships of the journey, and also the often times lack of consideration for women in the 1800s. But Christina at only 17 when the story begins, develops into a remarkable woman.

Don't expect a fast paced story. The heroine doesn't meet the hero until chapter 46. Then the story morphs into a love story about a white woman and an Indian. But the time is taken to develop the characters and allows the reader to connect with them. The characters are complex, with good and evil on both sides. There are definitely a few surprises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let color blind you January 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a wonderful story. I would recommend to anyone who loves a true Western but understands Native American ways. It's a love that crosses those lines and wins in the end. A must read.

More About the Author

Barbara Woster was born in Georgia to a Southern Dad and a British mother. She spent most of her youth reading, which led to a love of writing; however, living life (raising a family) left little time to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard). Much later, when her two oldest children came across a folder of story ideas, they began to encourage (push, really) her to start writing again. That is why she dedicates all of her books to her children, because they really did inspire her writing and also because they encouraged (and still do) her to pick it up again.

Many readers of Barbara's works may notice that she doesn't write for one age group, or in one particular genre. That's because when she was a teen, her reading material was wide-ranging -- from romance to mysteries. Barbara has her dad to thank for the diversity of reading materials. When she was fourteen, a neighbor accidentally broke her knee. For an entire summer, she was laid up with only books for company; books primarily published by Harlequin. Her dad stopped in and noticed all of the Harlequin Romance novels strewn on the bed covers and immediately stepped back out. A short time later, he returned carrying Iceberg by Clive Cussler. "You need to expand your reading horizons," he said. To this day, Clive Cussler is one of her favorite authors, as is Diana Gabaldon, Dean Koontz, and Tom Clancy (see, eclectic).

Her life, like her children, has provided much in the way of material to use for her books, all of which contain an element her past as well as much of her personality.

Barbara is a prolific writer with a passion for the written word. It is her hope that she will be writing for many years to come.
