Christian fiction romance set in the west. Not sure but I'd guess around mid 1800's. Woman is held hostage in a camp of bandits and of course falls in love with one and vice versa! I like the twist in this story and how it unravels but don't think it's one I'd read again.
This is a very good book. The characters are interesting and the story just pulls you in. I started reading Janette Oke's books when I was about 13 and this is one that I just read over and over. Great for young teens all the way through adulthood.
This story is a wonderful example of God's sovereignty and His ability to look after His own. The turns that the story takes holds your attention, and the undertone of faith can encourage readers both young and old. I've read the book several times and have enjoyed it every single time.
