This is one of those - hard to put down - novels with characters that capture your heart. Mandy conquers her fears and steps into situations where angels fear to tread. Dakota is kind, funny and patient. A very strong man who is not threatened by having a strong woman by his side. They were made for each other. From Denver to the plains and into the lands of the Native Americans, this fast moving story has surprises around each corner.
Erin Rainwater is a true artist with words that paint a masterpiece worth re-reading.
I am a tough critic reading a stack of novels every month. This one exceeded my expectations with a great begining, a lot of action and a well thought out ending. I'm ordering her next book today.

This book has non-stop action. Just when you think it can't get any worse, it does. And yet woven throughout is a wonderful love story, a strong faith message, and the reminder that where we place our hope is what will anchor us in the storms of life. The characters are three-dimensional, and Rainwater describes the setting in so much detail I could smell the smoke from the fires and feel the wind on my face. I caution the reader -- there are several scenes that will bring tears to your eyes, and two in particular that made me sob -- one for sadness, and one for joy. Rainwater is masterful at placing the reader in the moment and knows exactly when to end the story.

Traveling home, Mandy Berringer, mistaken to be part of a group of murderous whites, is taken captive by a band of angry Arapaho Indians. As the course of her life is forced on a diversion, what at first appears to be an ominous situation, develops into an experience that tones and cultivates Mandy into the strong woman the Arapaho lovingly call Woman Shot with Sun's Arrow.

As she prepares for the journey home to Colorado, a crippling accident closely followed by a raging epidemic prevents her from leaving. However, it is love slowly grown that holds her bound to these native people. One, in particular, captures her heart, and it with him that she begins a new life.

Dakota, half-white son of the Chief, is strong and capable and at last finds an opportunity to take his beloved Mandy home. Before reaching their destination, God redirects their paths. However, this time, they must travel alone. Trials and tests are thrown their way, causing them to stumble, but will they fall? Will their marriage withstand the heat of the fire as God refines them into vessels pleasing to him?

Rainwater has taken character development to a new level in "The Arrow that Flieth by Day". Each one is deep and complex, and by the end of the book, you will feel you have made new friends.

With enough twists and turns to satisfy even the most demanding reader, this book will keep you wondering until the last page is turned. Full of action, yet not lacking in depth of emotions, "The Arrow that Flieth by Day" is an adventure to read.

A Christian western romance by genre, "The Arrow That Flieth By Day" is set in 1867 Colorado. I could see this title fitting perfectly on the shelf at Family Book Stores, Mardel, or LifeWay. At once a romance, a period piece, and an inspirational story. Author Erin Rainwater is a Colorado author, and her love for the state is clear in the historical grounding of the storyline. Well-constructed, engaging, the narrative weaves fluidly from one scenario to the next. Character development is rich here, honestly portraying the vagaries of life and its effects on the psyche.

Mandy Berringer is determined, charismatic--a woman of character and faith. Her life changes when she meets Dakota John Starbuck, a man of mixed heritage who walks in two worlds: the native Arapaho and the colonial American. Rainwater gives us a tale of faithfulness and perseverance in a world of conflict and contention. On one level, this is a parable, a story with insight into worldview. On another, it is a testament to the human spirit. And the pursuit of "perfect love."

As a male, this was an unusual reading experience for me--a romance novel. But I enjoyed it. This is a faith-driven story, portraying a genuine Christian perspective. This cuts against the grain of our current entertainment culture of Hollywood hedonism, which is refreshing. A reminder that a life lived well is a noble, worthwhile goal.

This was labeled under Christian fiction but to me the book was lacking in the message of Christ and the Bible. There were references to God and a few Bible verses but the main characters just didn't strike me as being Christian.
There was also to much emphasis on the physical relationship between Amanda and Dakota. At times it made me uncomfortable so I would skip ahead. If I don't feel that i could give this book to my mom or my pastor to read, I wouldn't recommend this book to read.
But this is just my opinion and if you're interested in the old west and the Native Americans and a romance then you might like this book.

A very good suspense story that takes place in the late 1860s. There are very tense times between the Indians, and the white settlers. Dakota is a half breed who displays both cultures in his personality, and family life. His relationship with Mandy, a white woman from Denver has its ups and downs. He is completely faithful to both his Indian and white family, and friends. His relationship with God is what helps make him who he is.
Mandy has some extreme trials, but relies on God to see her through.
