Ethan tries to take Zara to safety, but they both find hurdles at every step. The reader is left wondering if they will ever find happiness.
This book is written so well and is so full of emotion, that I hate to find any criticism of it. But I found myself wishing for a few light moments, even though I know the period and the situation did not lend themselves to sweetness and light. Still, a bit of relief from the heavy ambiance would have been welcome.
After being captured as a child, Zara was adopted into an Indian tribe and was completely assimilated into their world until she was forcibly expelled for the crime of being a witch. (This was necessary to the story but didn't fit in with what I know of many Indian cultures, who would have honored her for having visions.) She was given over into the custody of her uncle who was a cruel, greedy man who planned to force her to marry his son to get a hold of her inheritance. After attempting to run away, Zara was severely beaten and almost raped by her uncle and ran away again. Ethan saved her when she fell through the ice, learned that she was an outlaw but decided to help her escape anyway. I don't want to say anymore and risk spoiling the story. There are a lot of twists and turns in the storyline as well as a surprise (a happy one) ending.
The writing was very well done with only a few editing mistakes that didn't interfere with the smooth flow of the story. I liked the fact that all the talk in the Indian's language was translated right after it was written. Too often when author's use sentences in a foreign language they are not translated and I find that extremely aggravating. The imagery was exceptionally good and I found that it was very easy to immerse myself in the story.
Reading this book was a very enjoyable experience and I definitely recommend it.
This was my first time reading Kathy-Fisher Brown so I was not sure what to expect. I'm glad that I was pleasantly surprised. I really loved her writing style and the pacing of the story. There was not a dull moment! I loved the hero and heroine. They had a perfect combination of chemistry and mystery. The author was able to provide great images of the setting and this made the story even more real. I really enjoyed reading about the Seneca Indians and their customs. I'm so excited to read her next novel, "Courting the Devil" if it's anything like "Winter Fire" it will be another enjoyable read!
I liked this book very much. It is a story about a white child captured by Indians in the American Northeast 1800's and how that effects many lives. I appreciated the research that the author put into the customs of the era. I really loved Zara's Indian ways. The story felt authentic and realistic in the mistrust, prejudice, misunderstanding, hurt, etc. between Whites and Indians. It was sad but understandable that Ethan struggled and was resistant in his love for Zara. Zara was almost too astounding, but I couldn't help but love her. The characters were so well developed that I was sorry for the story to end.
