Review

This is a beautifully written story filled with adventure and suspense...This book touched my soul even as it provided a thrilling fictional escape into a period of history I have always found fascinating. --Night Owl Book Review by Laurie-J

I loved the descriptions...I felt I was there...Many mystical episodes are intermingled with the events...The ending is a real surprise, but I will let you have the pleasure of reading it for yourself. 
--Seriously Reviewed

With "Red Bird's Song", Beth Trissel has painted an unforgettable portrait of a daring and defiant love brought to life in the wild and vivid era of Colonial America. Highly recommended for lovers of American history and romance lovers alike! ~Virginia Campbell

"I liked this book so much. The author has done a magnificent job of creating both characters and setting. The descriptions of the area are wonderful and put the reader right in there with the characters...I will most certainly read other books by this author." Overall rating: 5 out of 5 hearts
Reviewer: Jaye Leyel for The Romance Studio

From the Author

Much of the history and events in Red Bird's Song and Native American historical romance novel Through the Fire were inspired by accounts I uncovered while researching my English/Scots-Irish ancestors.  My fascination with Colonial America, particularly stirring tales of the frontier and the Shawnee Indians, is an early and abiding one. My forebears had interactions with this tribe, including family members taken captive. I have family ties to Wicomechee, an outstanding Shawnee warrior who really lived and whose story greatly impacted Red Bird's Song. I've included more on Wicomechee at the end of the novel as a bonus for my readers.

More About the Author

Married to my high school sweetheart, I live on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia surrounded by my children, grandbabies, and assorted animals. An avid gardener, my love of herbs and heirloom plants figures into my work. The rich history of Virginia, the Native Americans and the people who journeyed here from far beyond her borders are at the heart of my inspiration. I'm deeply drawn to colonial America and the drama of the American Revolution. In addition to American settings, I also write historical and time travel romances set in the British Isles, and nonfiction about gardening, herbal lore, and country life.

Customer Reviews

It was just too obvious, too cliched.

Beth Trissel has gleaned fascinating facts from her own Scot-Irish ancestral history to weave words telling a magical story of love, redemption, and hardship in the midst of cultural clashes. "Red Bird's Song" begins in the fall of 1764 in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Readers are immediately hooked with the opening scene of a pending Shawnee attack on a small English settlement.

Beautiful, nature-loving, and adventurous Charity Edmonson leaves the confines of her aunt's kitchen to gather herbs. And, to clear her head. An arranged marriage looms in her future. The intended groom is a friend, but not a paramour.

Charity is taken captive by Wicomechee, a Shawnee warrior. She runs from him. He is impressed with her speed but quickly catches her. The sounds of the war party in the settlement tear at Charity's heart. She soon learns that her uncle is among the dead. Her aunt is missing. And, her very pregnant widowed cousin is reunited with a former English love. The raid was designed to reunite Emma with Colin Dickson, now a blood brother of Wicomechee and a Shawnee on the run from a murder charge. Colin's new name is Waupee.

Charity soon finds herself falling in love with, fearful of, and not completely trusting her captor whom she calls Mechee. Wicomechee dubs Charity Red Bird because of her red hair. Red Bird's impulsive nature tends to lead the war party into exceptional danger.

Beth Trissel subtly uses her vast knowledge of herbs and plants to comfort and heal in several scenes. She weaves some good and bad traits of both the English and Shawnee culture in a realistic manner. This was my first book from Beth Trissel. It will not, by any means, be my last. She's a genius with historical romance. Beth Trissel has earned the five stars.

If you have an appreciation of history, or are a person who enjoys learning about other cultures or a lover of romance, do yourself a huge favor and buy this book. The author has me right there: seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and feeling everything along with the heroine, Charity, as she assimulates into the Native culture, pre-Revolutionary War. Anytime a writer is skilled enough in his or her craft to transport me on a magic-carpet-ride of words, I become an instant fan.

I'm the kind of girl that loves romance novels but I need the premise to be realistic enough to buy into it. I went into this with high hopes due to the high reviews. However from the very beginning the descriptions were shallow, the conversation was stilted and very odd, and the situations contrived and not very believable. Reads a bit like amateur fan fiction. I gave it three starts but haven't been able to get past chapter 2 because I just don't find the characters believable.

However I'm sure that there are people that like this kind of thing, so if you don't mind cliche and contrivance and just want romance it might be your thing.

I leave you with a quote from Chapter 2 just to give you a taste of what you'll be getting:
"The fire in Charity's jewel-like eyes and the tremor at her pretty mouth told Wicomechee she sought a target to strike. He could stare endlessly at this English beauty, but had the distinct impression he was about to be attacked.
She loosed the first volley. "How can your people be so heartless?" He bristled. Here was this glorious girl in all her ignorance daring to berate him. "You speak to me of caring, daughter of the Long Knives? Your people cause us much suffering, also to Shawnee women and children"

And this is Chapter 2. I assume the rest of it follows the same suit. I won't be reading it but I'll let the words speak for themselves and someone out there might like it for what it is.

This is a new author for me and I really enjoyed this book. I think the story was interesting. I read it in one sitting. I was so pulled in by the characters that it didn't feel like 300 or so pages. I was sad to have reached the last page and there was no more to read. I recommend this book.

Charity Edmondson flees the prospect of an unwanted marriage to a childhood friend only to become the captive of a Shawnee warrior. Once her life becomes entwined with that of the handsome and passionate Wicomechee, her destiny becomes one with the proud Shawnee. Her family and friends have suffered great losses at the hands of the Shawnee warrior tribe, and Charity has a great fear of her Indian captor and his clan. However, his patience, honor, and surprising gentleness soon show Charity that there is more than one side to the conflicts between the Shawnee and the settlers and their army. Wicomechee claims Charity for his wife, and she soon carries his child. They face many perils on the journey to the lodge of Wicomechee's grandfather, and their enemies are numerous and varied in their harmful intent. The man Charity once feared becomes the man whom she cannot live without, and the two of them forge an undeniable love and unbreakable bond. When the truth of Wicomechee's true heritage is revealed, many lives are changed and the future becomes uncertain. Will the bravest of warriors leave the life he has always known to protect the woman he loves more than his own life? With "Red Bird's Song", Beth Trissel has painted an unforgettable portrait of a daring and defiant love brought to life in the wild and vivid era of Colonial America. Highly recommended for lovers of American history and romance lovers alike!
