I was awed by the portraying of each character and the way they interacted with each other, so realistic, so exciting.
PART 1- Reads more of a love story (which is the genre I was looking for). If you are an avid romance reader, you will Iike this book because it focuses on the 2 main characters and their courtship and romance. It is very sweet, addicting, will keep you reading!! Their love is one of those loves that you gush over, but has its angst and problems to work though as well. This book does touch on Native American history, which I actually thought was very interesting and informative and gave me appreciation for the original inhabiters of our land. It wasnt too long-winded and didnt feel like solely a historical novel....Having said that....
In PART 2, it definitely read more as a historical novel. It was not near as good as the first book! All I wanted was to find out "what happens with Totka & Adela??"(the 2 main characters) But they are only together a couple of times in Part 2, which irked me to no end! I found myself skimming through alot of the book, just searching for when they'd meet up again! I wanted THEIR story to continue! i didnt want to delve into other relationships! This book focuses more on Totka's past(specifically with an old love), and Native American history- which I did find interesting and informative, but again I just skimmed through alot of it because I am just interested in the love story! I will say, that I was happy that it wrapped up Totka and Adelas story enough to have me satisfied. I was worried I would have to wade through yet another long-winded historical novel to have their story concluded!! I did NOT want to do that! So I will say I'm atleast satisfied enough to end it at Part 2. Was it the most romantic ending ever? No- because I dont think the author intended this to be the final conclusion of their story but having read reviews of PART 3, it sounds like theirs is just a background story in that book, so I was hoping things would wrap up in part 2, and glad they did.. enough.
So, in short, if you love historical novels, you will love this series. If you love the romance and love story- you may find yourself starting to get frustrated with how slowly the love story progresses in Part 2. SO overall, PART 1 I give 5 stars, PART 2, I give 3 stars, making an average of 4 stars for the 2 part story.
I read a lot of books...I have a lot of great authors/books on my Kindle, but this book, this series...I just can't get out of my head, or my heart. This author grabs your attention and pulls you so far into the story you don't want to get out, lol! It's really hard to put down to go to sleep (I have lost a lot of sleep...even after reading several times...is that weird?!)
If you're looking for an engaging book with realistic and fast moving, historically accurate plot, this is the one.
Also, the main characters are flawed, but so real and lovable! I really like both Totka and his Copper Woman (Adela)...and they have a rare and intense chemistry together. Really wonderful writing. Vivid scenes. Unforgettable.
I hope you enjoy this book - the entire series as much as I have!
But even putting aside my bias, this is a really good novel. Totka, though not yet a Christian, is an amazing hero who does whatever he can to care for his family and the woman he loves. Adela is nearly his equal as a heroine, as she is fierce in her protection of her family and firm in her faith in Christ even if it might cost her Totka.
There were moments when the text could have been clearer. Often, Adela would refer to "him" and it would be unclear whether she meant Totka or Nokose or even someone else for a few more sentences. Oddly though, this made the story seem more authentic to the time period so I did not mind it overly much.
I highly recommend it to those who love Historical fiction, especially who love stories with Native Americans.
