I adore this book! This book is so great. It combines historical fact with fiction. The main character Nalin is memorable and to have Quannah Parker as the hero is a stroke of genius. Read it and then reread again. You will never forget it.One of the best in his genre! Lisa thompson is only a girl when she is taken captive during a bankrobbery in the old West. She builds a warm friendship with one of the kidnappers, but he gets killed by her father and his friends, in an attempt to get her back. She runs away in anger, and is found half-dead in the desert by Comanches. When she is adopted by a chief, she turns her back to all whites and becomes a true Comanche-warrior. She falls in love with a young Comanche chief, but their relationship faces a lot of troubles before they get married and during their marriage. A beautiful story based on a historical Comanche chief with a lot of interesting background information.
