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. He has known poverty as well as wealth, but he has never known such simple joys as the Wolf family shares. So when an unusual happening forces a "shotgun wedding" to Indigo, Jake steps up to do the noble thing even though Indigo rebels at the idea of marrying any man.
Anderson tells the story of Jake and Indigo beautifully with elegant dialog and believable twists and turns. And wonderful secondary characters! I loved the family priest, Father O'Grady. He and Jake have a very funny conversation about Indigo that had me laughing out loud.
It's a great read and I recommend it! I do, however, suggest reading them in order.
The Comanche Series:
Comanche Moon, 1991
Comanche Heart, 1991
Indigo Blue, 1992
Comanche Magic, 1994
I have read all of Anderson's books and "Indigo Blue" is kind of in the middle for me. I enjoyed it but I feel that she has developed a lot as an author in the last few years. The characters are much more one-dimensional in this book and there are some dangling threads that you don't find in her later works. But even back then Anderson could tell a story and hold your interest. There are some definite plot twists and surprises along the way.
Comanche Heart - 1991 but recently reissued, Comanche Moon - 1991 but recently reissued, and Comanche Magic - 1994 but to be reissued soon in May 2011 are the other books that comprise this series of Anderson's.
If you liked this book, you should try Anderson's Coulter family series. I find them exceptional, with some of my favorites being Blue Skies,My Sunshine, and Phantom Waltz.
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 desperate need for work. He agrees to fill in for Hunter at the mine, until Hunter gets well again (the cave in happened when Hunter was in the mine).Then Jake meets Indigo a wild, and beautiful woman. Then as things progress and upon circumstances beyond their control (Lobo's death), 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. Jake is patient and kind, and the moments between him and Indigo are precious, as they get to know each other.
The reconciliation scene after Jake and Indigo had a huge fight (in which Jake lost his temper and said some really hurtful things to Indigo), is unforgettable and so moving that I cried at that part.
This story is beautiful, and moving, it is a great read.
