I knew it wouldn't be a romance, despite the very romancey cover, but the book still disappointed me. The writing style is very distant and cold, and the characterizations are very thin and herky-jerky. I was never able to get a bead on either Sarah or her Indian lover. The other secondary characters were flat and two-dimensional at most. The geography was very vague which annoyed me (I'm a local), and overall I was left unsatisfied. The best way I can describe this book is, "Things were doing things." Very emotionally uninvolving.

Sarah Wells is only seventeen when she is violently abducted by marauding Indians and taken to live as a slave amidst the savage splendor of a proud race. This is the story of her torment and captivity and untimately, of her love.
