Top Customer Reviews
The story then switches to a century earlier and the young woman to whom the trunk belonged. I liked and admired Priscilla immediately for her independent manner and her compassion towards Indians. Her friendship with Sarah was heartwarming, and the intense attraction that connected Priscilla with Sarah's brother Whirlwind Rider sizzled! The scene where they first met in the stable was so well-written. I absolutely loved this couple and felt the soulmate quality of their love, despite the huge cultural differences and the objections of Priscilla's dad and the white community.
The story switches back to Cecily, who is doing volunteer work in the same region Priscilla had lived, where she falls in love with Native American Kiah Red Thunder. Although Cecily and Priscilla are similar, Kiah is definitely not as likeable as Whirlwind Rider, and I found their romance resonated much less with me. When Cecily finds Priscilla's journal in a secret compartment of the trunk, it helps her to uncover the history of the region and to come to terms with her relationship with Kiah.
Cecily acquires a 100-year-old traveling trunk at an auction which contains some artifacts and writings of Priscilla Twiss, daughter of a White Indian Agent sent to educate the "savage" Sioux. Priscilla, drawn to the Sioux, comes to visit her father in the rugged, untamed west, and there she meets and falls in love with the proud warrier, Whirlwind Rider.
Both couples, though a century apart, share similar obstacles of restrictive social mores, racial hatred, and tumultuous circumstances in American Indian history, not to mention a suprising revelation which ties past to present.
Highly recommended reading for unforgettable romance, gripping storytelling, and fascinating American Indian History.
