Beautiful, nature-loving, and adventurous Charity Edmonson leaves the confines of her aunt's kitchen to gather herbs. And, to clear her head. An arranged marriage looms in her future. The intended groom is a friend, but not a paramour.
Charity is taken captive by Wicomechee, a Shawnee warrior. She runs from him. He is impressed with her speed but quickly catches her. The sounds of the war party in the settlement tear at Charity's heart. She soon learns that her uncle is among the dead. Her aunt is missing. And, her very pregnant widowed cousin is reunited with a former English love. The raid was designed to reunite Emma with Colin Dickson, now a blood brother of Wicomechee and a Shawnee on the run from a murder charge. Colin's new name is Waupee.
Charity soon finds herself falling in love with, fearful of, and not completely trusting her captor whom she calls Mechee. Wicomechee dubs Charity Red Bird because of her red hair. Red Bird's impulsive nature tends to lead the war party into exceptional danger.
Beth Trissel subtly uses her vast knowledge of herbs and plants to comfort and heal in several scenes. She weaves some good and bad traits of both the English and Shawnee culture in a realistic manner. This was my first book from Beth Trissel. It will not, by any means, be my last. She's a genius with historical romance. Beth Trissel has earned the five stars.
However I'm sure that there are people that like this kind of thing, so if you don't mind cliche and contrivance and just want romance it might be your thing.
I leave you with a quote from Chapter 2 just to give you a taste of what you'll be getting:
"The fire in Charity's jewel-like eyes and the tremor at her pretty mouth told Wicomechee she sought a target to strike. He could stare endlessly at this English beauty, but had the distinct impression he was about to be attacked.
She loosed the first volley. "How can your people be so heartless?" He bristled. Here was this glorious girl in all her ignorance daring to berate him. "You speak to me of caring, daughter of the Long Knives? Your people cause us much suffering, also to Shawnee women and children"
And this is Chapter 2. I assume the rest of it follows the same suit. I won't be reading it but I'll let the words speak for themselves and someone out there might like it for what it is.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book because I like Native American stories as well as historical romances. I rated Red Bird's Song 5 stars.Published 3 months ago by Dooley
I did think the dialogue was very strange in some parts. Charity came off quite air headed, immature and naïve throughout most of it. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Kate M.
