The story starts in a blizzard, but the heat smoldering between the heroine and her Indian escort is better than any coal fire. I absolutely love the detail in Ayers' novel. --USA Today Recommended Reads
About the Author
Born and raised with wealth, E. Ayers turned away from all of it and married a few days after turning eighteen, to the shock and dismay of family and friends. A firm believer in love conquering everything, there was never cause to look back. The newlyweds life-long love became the springboard for many future novels. Fascinated with the way people deal with everyday problems, E. Ayers has always been an observer and a listener. A simple problem for one person is a mountain for another. Utilizing those common predicaments, the subsequent novels have touched many lives. Today finds E. Ayers writing while living in a pre-Civil War home with a dog and a cat. Rattling around in an old money pit provides one s muse with plenty of freedom. A perfect day is spent at the keyboard, coffee in hand, and everything in the house actually working as it should. As the official matchmaker for all the characters who wander through a mind full of imagination and the need to share, E. Ayers enjoys finding just the right ones to create a story.
The book started a little slow for me; but about 1/4 the way thru the story line picked up and from there forward it was a really good read. The biggest complaint that I have about the Books that are written several books to a series; it is really hard to determine the sequence of the books in the series. This book seems to be a "stand alone book"; however I found a Book#1 - A snowy Christmas in Wyoming to be the first book of a series named Creed's Crossing; but could not find a book #2; but found #3 and #4. I wish that Amazon or the author or publisher would be a little more thorough regards listing of the sequence of books in a Series. I think you would sell more books plus it is very beneficial to your customer; the person buying the book. Also think you would sell more of the series. This is the first and only book that I've read by this author - but will check out more of her Historical Fiction.
This fictional romance offers a positive but honest view of the treatment of Native American's, but it's focus is on the a romance and the strong and fascinating characters.
Pregnant Malene was abused by the man she thought was her first husband, so when she asked to chaperone her sister and future brother-in-law to his home in Creeds Crossing, she agrees. Not far into the journey, she discovers that the father of her child is already married. As Many Feathers accommpanies them from the reservation to their knew home, Malene is both attracted and repelled by this man whose life and customs are so different from her own..
After a long and tough journey in a wagon they arrived to the open arms of wonderful family from who they learrn much, including the respect of all people.
This was a historical fiction love story that was unique to what I usually read. I liked the conflict created by getting one's heart and mind to match up. I like books that show courage and people who are willingly to go against the ridiculous parts of cultures without trying to eliminate the good. I only gave this 4 stars because in parts it moved slowly, and I felt Malene was a little too naive. Other than that, I enjoyed the book. Reader L
Malene has heard so much about how Indians were to be feared. She absolutely could not let this one get close to her. What can she do about these strange feelings she was having? Excellent book. No sex scenes. She was not allowed to be alone with a man. BUT she wanted to.
Would be wonderful and very hard to live in the days of this story. If we did not know all we know now how our world is so easy with running water in our homes and just turn on a switch and have light. And jump in the car and travel so easy. But all the hard work and love each person puts in there lifes is so wonderful to hear how they lived in the day of our fro-fathers. Very good story enjoyed.
