Review

Compelling and heartfelt, Walks Alone is an extraordinary novel of hope, faith, and forgiveness in the great American west as cultures collide and a way of life fades forever. Author Sandi Rog is to be commended for her deft handling of one of history s most heart-rending events, weaving a story of love and redemption in the midst of unimaginable tragedy and loss. An absolute treasure of history and heart! --Laura Frantz, author of Courting Morrow Little and The Colonel's Lady

Sandi Rog has crafted an unforgettable, gripping tale of a young Dutch woman who comes to America to find her dream, and ends up in the savage wilderness abode of the Cheyenne Indians! Ten year old, Anna van Stralen has left her homeland of Holland, along with her beloved widowed father, to find their dream in Colorado Territory. Upon reaching America's shore, Anna's father passes away and she is left in her abusive uncle's care for six long, miserable years. Anna, however, never loses sight of her dream, and scrimps and saves every penny until she is able to catch a train to Denver, far away from her uncle. Because of her naivete, something goes terribly awry, and Anna finds herself on the back of a horse, held captive by the fearsome Cheyenne, and headed into the savage wildnerness home of the Indians.

White Eagle is disturbingly handsome, with mesmerizing blue-green eyes, and speaks English better than Anna. In exchange for Anna's freedom and safe passage to Denver City, she agrees to a platonic marriage to White Eagle, a kindhearted but fierce man as well, with a terrible, haunting secret. As Anna learns to live alongside of these gentle, but strange people, she learns some valuable lifelong lessons about prejudice, the color of a man's skin, and the true beauty that lies within a person.

Who is this tenderhearted, but deceitful, fierce man she has married, called White Eagle, and will she ever make it to the place of her and her father's dreams? Is the answer to all of her dreams right inside of her carpetbag? Will she ever be able to let go of her bitterness towards God because of the abuse she has suffered? Will White Eagle find forgiveness in his heart towards the white man, and find peace with God?

What an incredible, heart-felt novel! Rich with Native American culture, intrigue, and romance, Walks Alone held me captive to the end. So many desperate choices necessary for survival had to be made, but the things the hero and heroine feared most also made them stronger in the end. The variety of emotions they experienced and the developing love between them compelled me to read on, and more than that, they caused my eyes to well with tears a number of times. I felt the characters' pain and sensed their relief as their many trials made them stronger once they realized they were not alone, but that God was with them all along. Walks Alone contains a lot of realism and spiritual depth, which made me think more about my own faith. Most of all, this is a story of unconditional love and finding true freedom in Christ. He wants us to come to Him because we love Him, not because we were forced. This novel is a beautiful portrayal of Gods love for us and shows us why He gives us the freedom to choose. I loved Walks Alone so much that it's making my favorite fiction list for 2012!

I was not prepared to enjoy this book as much as I did. I had never heard of the author and just wanted something to read. The reviews were good and the price was right. I was not disappointed.

This book reminded me of one of my favorite movies, "The Last of the Mohicans." This is probably because of the descriptions of the beautiful and untamed western landscapes. I fell in love with the Cheyenne tribe and main characters of this book. I also appreciated that the hero and heroine were introduced towards the beginning of the book. The relationship develops in a believable and touching fashion. There are a lot of exciting action scenes in this book also. I couldn't put it down and stayed up way too late reading until I finished. It was that good.

Author Sandi Rog has a way of sweeping me away on a romantic dream with her novels. But I have to admit I love `Walks Alone' the best. Call me a romantic fool, but there's just something about a young woman travelling out west to live her father's dream, and she gets captured by Cheyenne warriors. It's the summertime in Colorado, there's sunshine, the beauty of the Rockies, a pristine lake, and a village of gentle Cheyenne with all their fascinating culture of teepees, soft buckskin, and turquoise artistry. And a Cheyenne warrior who takes your breath away.

Place two people into this setting, who from page one you them want to be together, and a seemingly impossible love blossoms.

Add to this, the amazing way that the author weaves a story of Christian love for the one true God within those pages, and you have a breath-taking Christian Historical Romance.

The author has drawn two characters that simply leap from the pages. I loved both Anna and White Eagle immediately and their warm and complex characters wouldn't let me put the book down. I had to read the entire book in one sitting.

I highly recommend this book.

I could not put the book down, could not stop reading. This book got enough of everything. Captured, forced marriage, love/hate, passion, separation, dealing with past things, let the Lord change you and give over and a wonderful ending. A very good book!. I read Sandi's first book The Master's Wall and bought Walks Alone. Now I am going to read the follow-up book of The Master's Wall - Yahshua's Bridge.
