Here we have Suzanne in an abusive marriage and she has just learned that she is pregnant. Her abusive husband is not at all pleased about the news. A few chapters on the story took an unexpected turn when Suzanne had the accident in the desert. The only other person out in the desert at that time was the handsome Cody Black Fox who rescued her from the car wreck. As he was tending to her she questioned him about her surroundings and she learned that somehow, she ended up in the year 1860. My first thought was that Suzanne must be in a coma after the accident. Her adventures with Cody Black Fox was brilliantly portrayed but all the while I was convinced that Suzanne was dreaming. I continued reading - not sure whether I was enjoying the twist, yet not quite ready to put the book down. The more I read, the more the book disturbed me. The tension grew with each chapter and I was willing it to end. Suzanne went from pregnant mother out for a drive to being locked up in a fort, being brutally attacked by a village Chief and having to fight for survival during a snow storm. Each situation she found herself in seemed to be hopeless, however Cody always came to Suzanne’s rescue and they managed to escape and continue their journey in the hopes of getting Suzanne back to the year 2015 before she had to give birth to her baby.
The story ended on a romantic high and with a sigh of relief I put the book down, however I do have mixed feelings about this book as I have never been one to read time-travel fiction or anything with a paranormal twist to it. The book is well written and kept me captivated throughout. There were several repetitions about Suzanne’s feelings of inadequacy and Cody’s reference to being a ‘half-breed’, which I felt was unnecessary as it didn’t contribute anything new to the plot.
If you enjoy a twist and sitting on the edge of your seat while reading, then this book is for you!
If you like suspense, history, time travel, romance, and/or westerns, then you'll love this book.
The middle is a tad slow, but getting to the end is SO worth it. (Of course, I'm the world's slowest reader, so I may be biased on the slowness.)
This is a beautiful love story about acceptance, healing, and survival. It features gritty realism and reminds me strongly of the television show, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. It shows that there are challenges involved with living in any time period. The title character has low self-worth, but she is such a survivor. I'm not sure if I could survive what she survives. And Cody... LOVE HIM!
I hate romances. I hate historical fiction. I hate westerns. Pretty much every single genre that this book falls into is on my “things I hate” list. Honestly, if I had not interviewed Kristi, I never would have given this book a chance at all. But I forced myself into it, and I am glad that I did! I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the book, and I think that the quality writing had something to do with that. Oh, and the supernatural stuff. I liked that a lot. :)
The writing quality is especially evident when regarding the character development of Suzanne – a victim of domestic abuse, both physical and emotional, Suzanne is so well depicted that it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that she is a real person. I hate it when main characters are flawless, and Suzanne is far from flawless. She’s weak and insecure, and sometimes I just wanted to shake some sense into her; yet she’s a survivor and maybe has a little more spark down inside her that proves she’s not as weak as we think she is. It’s easy to understand why Suzanne is the way that she is, even if we don’t agree with the way she reactions to her situations.
My only minor negative comment to make (which is the reason for my 1 star less-than-perfect review) is that I found the plot a little slow-paced at some points and a bit repetitive at others. But I am also willing to admit that this is probably just due to my pre-biased against romances and historical fiction and may not necessarily reflect the true nature of the book.
Overall, I am glad I picked up this book. It was a fun read and has opened me up to potentially giving some other books of this nature a chance.
It was a steady read but I really did not like the book.
