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.
Author Kathy Fischer-Brown has created lifelike characters that live and breathe during the pioneer days of the late 1700's.
Zara Grey's memories of her childhood are gone. As a child she was taken by the Iroquois Indians after her family is massacred. Now she only knows life as it is with her Iroquois family. Fifteen years later, as a young woman, Zara becomes an outcast from her tribe. With her life no longer as she knew it, she must now try to live in the white man's world.
The reward hangs in the balance for years for the return of this white child now woman to her long lost family. Her own uncle, Rufus Grey is determined to collect on her. Little does anyone know his true intent?
Ethan Caine lives with the demons that haunt him. He saves the life of Zara and again fights new demons that threaten to destroy him. When these two cultures collide, Ethan and Zara's worlds are changed forever. You will have to read the book as it is written with intrigue, mystery, drama and a love that can't be broken.
I recommend this book!
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.
This historical story will take you back in time and capture your heart in an era of hard times,of family ties and of a love that is meant to be.I can't say enough how great this story is.It is well plotted and flows so easily that before you know it... You can't put it down.You have to see what will happen next.I "HIGHLY" recommend this book!! You can't go wrong on this one.
