The gross mistreatment of Native Americans by our government remains one of the great outrages of American history, and a novel that covers any part of this disgraceful page in our history seems like a fine idea. And I personally approve of interracial relationships, so I thought this would be at least a good (if not a great) read. But no.
At best, the writing is flat as a board. At worst it's squirm-inducing awful. Unfortunately, a large portion of the book consists of detailed, explicit sex scenes that are just plain embarrassing. I'm not a prude about such things, and I was actually looking forward to reading about this hot love affair between a Native American man and a white woman escaping a loveless marriage. But OMG! The over-written, florid prose that describes the couple's love-making mostly made me laugh out loud. In addition, there was WAY too much emoting about the joys of female submission to a big, masterful male. Even for the 1920's, when the novel takes place, this sounded very retrograde. Furthermore, the woman's desire to have her lover inflict physical pain on her was something I found perverted and disgusting.
And then there were mistakes like referring to a threshing machine as a "thrashing" machine, and turning the phrase "tabula rasa" into "tabula rosa." Also a reference-- in the 1920's-- to the Pentagon, which wasn't founded until 1941.
In the hands of a more accomplished writer, this could have been an excellent book.
or any kind of paranormal or shaman stories at all. This book had all the wrong ingredients, cheating wife, Indian Shaman, weird connection between the H and h, but I must say Ms. Bonds put together all these negatives (for me) and came up with an amazing book. I would say its the best book I have read by Ms. Bonds. Truly a fascinating romance. I could feel the deep attraction between these individuals. I have read this book more than once and I usually drop two or three books a day after reading the first chapters. Wow, I do highly recommend this book.
