"Indigo Blue" is a story about a young woman who, despite her bravery in the face of danger and rascism, has a severe inferiority complex. Jake Rand comes into her life at a time when she is dealing with a lot of problems. Her father has been severely injured in the mine that he owns and she, being the only child, takes over. Jake comes and immediately takes control, never telling her that he is in fact a wealthy businessman who made a fortune through mining. He is out to find out if his father is really causing accidents in small mines and then buying them from the bankrupt owners. He is immediately drawn to Indigo but his own preconceptions of women and their role in society cause him to treat her badly. She is forced into marriage with him and is terrified that he will treat her badly because he might percieve her as a "squaw". Indigo was betrayed by the first man that she loved and she does not know how to deal with Jake. He overwhelms her and confuses her and, as he begins to understand her fears and her personality, comes to love her very much. The description and the writing were lovely. Anderson made her characters come alive, painting their struggles and their growing love and understanding of each other in a way that lets the reader become a part of the story. "Indigo Blue" is a great romance novel and I would recommend it to anyone.

This is the story of Hunter and Loretta's daughter, Indigo. When she was only thirteen she was sexually assaulted but not raped, because Swift had saved her before anything happened. But the emotional scars she carries from that incident are so deep and painful. Ms. Anderson shows the racial prejudice at the time, its cruelty and ugliness. And the plight of women in those times. Six years later, Jake Rand walks into her life. Jake owns the company Or-Cal and he had been sent by his father to buy Hunter's mine.

Only before heading to Wolf's landing, Jake soon discovers that the mine had come across several accidents from cave ins, etc, which were not just mere accidents, but looked more like staged incidents. With dread, Jake decides to look into the matter more, to investigate it. He can hardly believe that his father would resort to ruining mines, banks, etc, and then offer to buy them knowing that the owners would have no choice but to sell.

Upon arrival to Wolf's landing Jake disguises his true identity and instead tells the Wolf family that he is passing by and in desparate need for work. He agrees to fill in, in Hunter's place at the mine until Hunter gets well again (The cave in happened when Hunter was in the mine).

There Jake meets Indigo a wild, and beautiful woman. Then as things progress and upon circumstances beyond their control, Lobo's death, which was a very sad part of the book, they spend the night in the woods, in a small abandoned cottage, Lobo's last hours.

Because of that situation, Jake and Indigo find themselves forced to marry. After that, the struggle begins, Jake is trying his best to make this marriage work and to understand Indigo. Indigo is doing her best to hide her feelings, and get through this marriage which she resents.

Catherine Anderson provides a travel visa, whenever I pick up one of her novels. This author's location sketches are excellent. Her character development is exceptional, and immediately, her reader is hooked into her provocative storylines. Usually, this author's heroines are survivors from some inflicted misery. "Indigo Blue" is no departure from the Anderson blueprint.
The heroine is Indigo Wolf, her misery -- a violent attack by teenage boys. She carries around enough sexual hang-ups to last a woman nineteen million life spans. However, I am a big Anderson fan, and I read Indigo's father's story in "Comanche Moon". In that book, Hunter of the Wolf, was a powerful, intense Comanche warrior. To think he would allow a group of teenage boys to assault his daughter sexually and then get away with it - well -- IT WOULD NOT HAPPEN!!
I read this book with eagerness. The death of Indigo's pet is heart wrenching material, and Anderson's portrayal of racial prejudice is insightful and direct; the power of hate and ridicule is eye opening. Although Anderson draws a touching story, I was still frustrated with Indigo's sexual obstacles, this continuous abstraction results in the novel's "bog down". This is a good book, but it could have been better.

Set in Oregon in 1885, this is the story of Indigo Wolf, daughter of Hunter of the Wolf and his white wife, Loretta, from Comanche Moon and Comanche Heart. When she was younger, Indigo fell in love with a young man who broke her heart and betrayed her trust, telling her she was just a "squaw" and good for only one thing. Though his attempted rape was thwarted by her uncle, Swift Lopez, Indigo is still scarred by the experience and wary of men who are attracted to her. She has become her own woman, tending to the wild animals of the forest, wearing Indian dress and helping her father with the mine.

When a series of mine accidents have her father, Hunter, laid up with injuries, along comes Jake Rand to offer his hand at managing the mine (though he seems to spend little time doing that). In reality, Jake is the oldest son of a wealthy owner of mines, many of which were purchased when the mine owner was in trouble, as Hunter is now. While Jake originally came to purchase Hunter's mine, when he finds out his father may be causing the mine accidents, he comes in disguise to learn the truth. He didn't count on meeting the bewitching Indigo who soon has him forgetting he has a fiancé back in Portland. And he shakes Indigo's world, too. ("The moment she first saw him, she had sensed it--an inexplicable something, a strange feeling of recognition--as if her destiny had finally come calling.")

As with the first two books in the series, Anderson has captured the time period and the Comanche culture with practiced expertise. She makes it look easy when it isn't. We see Wolf's Landing and it's unusual blending of cultures from Jake's point of view, a stranger to this part of Oregon. Jake is impressed by the love he witnesses in the Wolf family.
