Despite rumors of ghosts, Ida takes up residence in an abandoned farmhouse with plans to turn it into a school for the Indian children living nearby. Her companions, three dogs, keep her company as she mends fences, cleans the house, and waits for the Indian Agent who was supposed to meet her upon arrival some two weeks earlier.
Jeremiah Griggs was expecting a Mr. and Mrs. Newcomb, not an unmarried woman out of her element with a stubborn streak to boot. But Ida's determination, open-mindedness, people skills, and ability to play a mean fiddle quickly win the admiration of the townsfolk and the Indian community. So with the promise that her fiancé will soon be joining her, Jeremiah decides to let her stay on.
As the two work together, Ida discovers a deep respect and love for the Cherokee people. She also feels the same for Jeremiah, and though she tries to suppress it, she feels much more. Jeremiah appreciates her independence and intelligence. With him, Ida doesn't have to hide or pretend, but can be her true self. She wants that sort of honesty in her marriage, but how can she have it when John is nothing like Jeremiah? And if she doesn't marry John she won't be able to stay on this land or with the people she's come to love.
I'm normally not a huge fan of 19th Century romance. I don't have anything against it, it's just that usually it doesn't capture me. However, this book did. I think it's because Ms.Read more ›
Alone in the Oklahoma Territory, with the promised Indian agent nowhere in sight, Ida must manage to do everything on her own, including living in a house the town folk claim is haunted. She longs for the day her reserved fiance will finally finish his business obligations to join her and begin their married life. But despite having to do without servants for the first time in her life, Ida is energized by the wildness of her surroundings.
Jeremiah Griggs, the Indian agent is disconcerted to find Ida alone in the remote schoolhouse. He can't figure out why her fiance would send such a beautiful woman alone into the wilderness. Jeremiah fights his attraction to Ida, knowing she's off limits. But as mysterious occurrences build into outright danger, Ida needs him more than she realizes, and far more than she's willing to admit.
Taming the Wild Wind is the best kind of historical romance. Highly recommended!
Through each trial Ida faces, we as readers are privileged to listen in on Ida's prayers and thought life. We observe as Ida wrestles with God's will and His sovereignty. Ida uncovers and deals with her own secret sins. The gospel is clearly presented. Prejudice and stereotypes are boldly exposed. Mingled sweetly with romance, yet seated firmly in modesty, this is a fantastic historical fiction piece. I have always been a lover of pioneer stories (Laura Ingalls Wilder, Janette Oke, etc), and had no trouble falling in love with this book--even being an e-book! This book is short, and is great to pick up and finish in a weekend.
I just might fall in love with e-books if I can keep finding treasures like this one!!
Well, I just finished the book, and enjoyed it immensely. The main part of the climax had been signaled from the start (no spoiler from me, though), but the secondary events at the end were a delightful surprise, leaving me wishing I knew the rest of the story.
Kindle (or someone) has doubled one paragraph, but it's only about three lines I had to read twice, so no big deal. Donita Paul is a multi-talented lady!

I love Donita Paul's fantasy books. They are witty and keep a good pace. Unfortunately, I am finding her romance novels tedious. The characters are flatter. Read morePublished on April 18, 2013 by Kindle Customer
