I loved this story! I read it awhile ago and I can't remember all of it, but when I think of it I smile! :-D All of Elizabeth Graysons are worth reading. :-D

The writing in this book is wonderful. Whole sections of this novel are 'poetry in prose.' Cassandra Morgan was captured by Indians when she was 15. Besides the usual things that happened to young women, she was permanently disfigured (tattooed on the face). When traded back to the whites for provisions, Cassandra faces the prejudices captured whites endure when living again amongst whites.

As Cassandra tries to filter back into the life she once knew, she is aided by a half-breed, Hunter Jalbert, a scout for the military. He does not speak of his attraction to her and Cassandra marries an army officer she grew up with in Kentucky (who is now assigned to the fort where Cassandra is brought).

Captain Drew Reynolds is a study in contrasts. He hates Indians in spite of marrying Cassandra. He struggles internally when Cassie is named as a traitor.

There is so much suppressed emotion in this book. Grayson obviously knows much about the history of this period and she uses it to advantage throughout the novel. A unique plot; a great read!
