Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Adela has always wanted to belong. To that end, she decides to enter the novitiate of the Sisters of Charity in Santa Fe, where she was taken in as a six-year-old when her mother abandoned her. Returning from her first journey to solicit contributions for St. Vincent's Hospital, where she is a nurse, Adela discovers a wounded half-Apache in the desert and insists on hospitalizing him. She soon discovers that Ladino has his own agenda, which somehow involves her in a quest for vengeance. She is soon unwillingly drawn to him in spite of, or perhaps, because of, his dangerous undercurrents. Pounds has taken a classic romance plot device as the basis for her western historical romance, and, although she gets some of her facts about Catholicism wrong, she has done an exceptional job of creating a vivid picture of the times.
