Book Description

She called him Tender Spirit, because he was kind to her, for she knew not his true name. In fact, Beth named them all, the entire band of young Indian men who took her from her home.

As she watched them, she found their characters and mannerisms interesting, and it occupied her mind giving each of them names. This kept her from dwelling on the worst and helped her keep her mind off the pain--the pain of the wound she received when the bullet from one of their guns tore through the tender flesh of her thigh.

Beth wondered what had happened to her brother, Tom, back at their cabin, their home where they had taken care of each other since the death of their parents over a year ago. Why had he not tried to stop them was her question, as she struggled to keep her fear, and the agony she was in hidden away.

Where she was being taken and why, would soon be revealed. The man she called Tender Spirit, whom she came to know by his true name, Kiyiya, had taken her hoping she could bring happiness to his mother, Helaku. With Kiyiya's sister having been lost to death, he wanted Beth to help lessen that loss, or at least this is what Beth was led to believe.

But for Beth, seeing Kiyiya as a brother was never truly an option. She knew when she first looked into his black eyes that she would never be the same.


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

T.M. Hobbs lives in a small town in Northeast Texas, with her husband, son, and the sweetest cat that has ever graced the Earth. She has always enjoyed reading stories filled with romance, adventure, fantasy, and mystery. In recent years, however, she has taken these passions to a new height in discovering her own voice through writing fiction.

This challenge began for her several years ago when she took a huge step and nervously joined an online group of young writers, who had the same passion she did for exploring other possible plots for their favorite stories. She had almost completed her first lengthy such project and felt she needed to find a place where others could enjoy reading it as well.

When that project ended at approximately 110,000 words, she knew she could do more and searched for a way to put her talent and love of writing into motion for a more beneficial means.

For her, writing is a way of traveling to places and times that would otherwise be impossible to touch and feel. She has found the ability to create new characters and form their lives rewarding, and it brings her a feeling of accomplishment.

Through writing, she has found that she not only feels better about herself, she also has a great sense of satisfaction knowing that she has created something that someone else can enjoy.
For this author, romance is a fundamental component in what she enjoys writing. Whether it is the Native American captive tale or a historical novel set on the rolling, misty moors in 18th century England, she loves sharing the world she has created with others.

T.M. Hobbs has had the good fortune of having several of her short stories and novels published. She has worked with Books To Go Now and Gypsy Shadow Publishing, to name a few.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Simplistic and Short Story September 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was surprised to come to the end of the story so quickly. It was pretty simplistic in "Guy & Girl Fall In Love" and they have trouble letting each other know of their feelings for each other.
I got the feeling that a novice author wrote this which is fine as one needs to begin somewhere.
I'm needing something more intense but w/o all the sex, sex, sex thrown in all the way through the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars A children's story January 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was supposed to be an adult novel, but most of it was at a level suitable for children. It was incredibly simplistic and the main character seemed to have no real concern about being kidnapped and take away from her remaining family. There was no hint of violence (except for Beth being shot in the leg and apparently able to walk on it for hours without treatment) or fear, which you would expect in a story like this. That Beth's first action after being kidnapped was to name her kidnappers speaks volumes about this story.

This book was a pleasant depiction of life in a tribe. It would have been so nice, if life was really like it depicts, in real life.

This story started out scary with a young woman being taken from her home. As the story continued the. Young Indian had fallen in love a year before. Love at first sight. Probably a better loving relationship than most people.
