Cut to the chase: it's 1621 and the Native American (and subsequently his siblings) who discover her speaks English. It is explained that he was taught because the white man is not trustworthy, so one needs to be able to communicate in the white man's language. I get that. However, the Native Americans speak PERFECT English. They pronounce Maggie's name as "Ma-gee" yet they never hesitate when speaking, they pronounce every word correctly and never use bad grammar. I find this amazingly hard to believe. The icing on the cake is that Ma-gee speaks modern-day English and they understand her. Contractions and mild slang does not cause the American Indians to ever ask for clarification or for her to repeat what she said.
Also (since this is at the beginning of the book - again, I only made it to p34 - I don't think this is a spoiler), there is a scene where Winn's (the main character opposite Ma-gee) mare is dying from birthing a new foal. Of course, Ma-gee is there to save the day and thus endear her to the tribe. That's fine and I understand why it was written. However, here are Native Americans who have been living off the land and caring for their animals for centuries, and NO ONE in the tribe knows how to help the mare or her foal? The mare is past help so Ma-gee concentrates on the foal. (I'm not a horse-person, so I apologize if "foal" is the incorrect term. "colt"?) The foal is too far from the mare to suckle so Maggie gets Winn's brother to help. They need to get milk from the mare -- and no one but Maggie knows what to do! Really?? She orders for buckskin water carriers and gets the milk into them. Then, what to do?? How to get the milk from the carrier to the foal?? Winn's brother looks helpless then Maggie takes his knife, creates a small hole, then the foal can drink from the improvised teat. Really? Not one member of the tribe knew how to do this?
Between the perfect English conversations and understanding and the Native American's lack of intelligence, I closed the book and deleted it from my library.
I would have loved to find out more about the Bloodstones but maybe that’ll be in the next book.
The writing was fairly simple, with enough detail to keep me reading.
I couldn’t really feel a connection to the characters or their love story until near the end, even then it was faint. They fought and stayed away from each other more than they got to know each other so it was just a little unrealistic when they said I love you.
It was an alright read, nothing to really scream from the rooftops. The teaser for the book makes it sound more exciting than it is, which was a little disappointing however, it was still good enough for me to want to finish.
I would say that it’s for fans of time travel but that makes it sound like they’re hopping all over the place, which isn’t true so, I guess I would say that it’s for fans of a little bit of time travel with a frustrating love story.
