Joseph Walker, the eldest son of Alex & Evelyn, is all grown up and at the request of a well-respected Bannock Indian chief, Two Bears, Joseph sets off to Boston to find the chief’s granddaughter. Raven is the daughter of French trapper, Laurent & Whispering Waters. But when her parents were murdered, her father entrusted her life to the mountain greenhorn, Byron Yancy with the explicit instructions to take their daughter, leave and protect her from the evil Oliver Sabin.
Raven was raised as Byron Yancy’s only child, Sophia, in the Boston society where he grew up. Byron took over his family textile business and grew even more wealth. He never married or had any more children, leaving Sophia as his only heir. Sophia always felt out of place in Boston society, where she was looked down upon because of her mixed heritage, but was just barely accepted because of her father’s money & connections. However, she was never told about her biological parents, therefore she knows nothing about that side of her family.
Joseph is determined to take Raven to meet her grandfather before he dies, but he expects to meet a little Indian girl, not a stunning socialite who was raised as a privileged & pampered white woman. He still wants to take her, but there will be vast differences in his ability to travel with her than when he was alone. He will not only have to provide and ensure her survival, he’ll have to protect her from any evil forces out there.
Of course, with so much time being spent together on the trail, they will have to fight their attraction. Sophia will have a choice to make where she wants to live. Either in the wilderness with Joseph & his family and her Indian family, where she doesn’t totally know how to live or Boston society with the only father she has ever known, who gave her everything, but where she was never accepted. Will love be enough for her and Joseph?
I was a little bummed at the end, because I felt like I needed more closure or an epilogue that showed Joseph & Sophia in the future. But the epilogue sets up the next book, which is Joseph’s brother, Lucas’s book.
The author's love for the wild, Western country Joseph and Sophie traverse is apparent throughout the story. Settings are vividly described, allowing the reader to fully visualize that beautiful, rugged land. The dangers and challenges to survival in the wilderness are neither ignored nor sugar-coated, but Sophie learns for herself what Joseph has always known: the land is also a place of exhilarating beauty, freedom, and joy.
The scope of the story moves easily from the expansive to the intimate. Joseph and Sophie face danger not only from those who wish them harm, but also from the hazards of the country itself. They also must deal with the very real social barriers that separate them, even as their attraction to, and feelings for, one another grow ever more powerful.
The quality of Ms. Henderson's writing is very high. The narrative flows easily, and there is appealing humor. Characters talk to one another in a believable and natural way, and never seem out of place or time. My only quibble is with the "Epilog." It's the lead-in for another book, rather than a wrap-up of TETON SPLENDOR. That was confusing and a little disappointing. Calling the passage something like "Preview," rather than "Epilog," would have taken care of that problem. Very minor issue, though. Overall, I happily recommend TETON SPLENDOR.
