Opposites attract. But then what? He was about to go to a war zone. He couldn't get involved with a woman now. She was in a battle for custody of her son. She couldn't risk a new romance.
He was half Navajo; he embraced the spiritual wisdom of his ancestors.
She knew nothing about his traditions.
And both Will Baron's and Arley Meehan's big, protective, opinionated families opposed the two of them being together.
If they were smart, they'd walk away from each other fast. If they followed their hearts, who knew what might happen....
Unique storyline - very nice
Will Baron is a young man trying to find a balance between his two heritages, Navajo and white. Raised on the reservation by a mixed cultural family, he has embraced his Navajo roots, but still struggles with finding his own identity. Leaving the reservation, he joins the Army and ends up stationed at a base in North Carolina, his white father's home, where he meets a young single mother who captures his heart. This is a part of the Navajo series and it brings in characters from previous books so I think it is helpful and improves the story if the other books are read first. Having read the others, I was prepared to like this one as well. I was disappointed that Will's character seemed less well-developed than the heroine's, and I never really understood why, in this book, he seems to give up his connection to the Navajo culture.
