He knew he needed help or he would die, so half-breed David Walker forces himself to reach Hannah, his friend from the orphanage. In spite of the wound, David survives the arduous trek to Purgatory, Texas where he knows the schoolteacher will nurse him back to health.
Hannah cannot believe the boy who kept her safe and provided solace to her as a little frightened child, now seems more Indian than white. David seems to have vanished replaced by Spirit Walker. However, to Hannah a rose is a rose especially when that flower is David or as he calls himself now Spirit Walker. Hannah knows she loves him and has always ever since he soothed her years ago. She willingly risks her life when his deadly enemy comes to town to finish the job.
The road to Purgatory, Texas means entertaining reading for fans of western romances so with Heidi Betts returning there with HANNAH'S HALF-BREED, fans knows this novel will be just fine. The lead couple is a delightful duo sharing in common love and a willingness to give up everything for their beloved. The arrival of the Purgatory horde (see the other alliteration novels - CALLIE'S CONVICT and WALKER'S WIDOW) will please fans of the author and help entice readers to seek other books like this one.
