It was good....
on February 23, 2011
This was a good book. I loved the cover, I thought it was very intriguing.
Here's the story:
Meadow's a white girl who was adopted by the Sioux when she was two, after they ambushed the wagon trail her family had been traveling on. The Sioux have moved to Canada to evade the American army.
Black horse is the chief of another tribe that has just joined the gathering in Canada to rest for a while after leading war parties against the settlers.
I don't want to spoil how they meet because I think that was the best part of the book. You'll just have to read to find out. :)
Basically it's love at first sight for them and they want to marry right away, alas, it is not to be as Meadow is captured by a dreaded Blackfoot warrior bent on revenge. Meadow is a strong heroine and is able to rescue herself and her man in this tale of a woman who loves the adoptive family and people who took her in and raised her as one of their own, even when forced to choose between them and her biological family.
The biggest reason I gave this book three stars was because the ending felt rushed to me. I wanted there to at least be an epilogue or something to tell us what happened to our hero and heroine.
All in all it was still a good read.
