In 1868, Margaret Ann Toland and her Uncle Patrick persuade her widowed mother to leave Boston to start a new life in the Oregon Territory. However, the trek west is harsh and along the way many die including Maggie's beloved mom. Feeling guilty that her mother is dead while she lives, Maggie has lost her desire for the Pacific though she goes through the motions of doing the right thing amongst the other wagon train travelers.
At a stop in the Wyoming Territory, local rancher Archibald Parrish drops by and decides he wants Maggie. Also visiting is Cheyenne warrior Wind Walker who feels Maggie is his soul mate. When Maggie ignores Archy, but shows favoritism towards the Indian, the amoral rancher abducts the red haired witch. Now Wind Walker must enter the encampment of his enemy to rescue the woman he loves or die trying.
As usual Cassie Edwards provides an entertaining Indian romance starring two courageous noble lead characters and an odious white male. The story line is action-packed and filled with a strong secondary cast. WIND WALKER is typical of Ms. Edwards' bunker of novels that have well written, but interchangeable key characters whether they are a gallant male Indian, an intrepid all alone white female or an ignoramus like Archy. Each seems capable of moving back and forth between this author's books.
Yearning for adventure, Maggie Tolan convinces her mother to leave Boston, and everything they have ever known, for the wilderness of the frontier. But by the time she reaches the Wyoming Territory, Maggie has lost her mother - and her desire to go on. Until she meets a Cheyenne warrior who takes her breath away...
Wind Walker is mesmerized by the spirited white woman who has camped near his village. But he's not the only one. A loathsome local rancher has set his sights on Maggie and steals her away from her wagon train in the middle of the night. Now Wind Walker must find the flame-haired beauty - for he's already lost his heart....
Edwards did it again another big, bad, & brawny Indian and the woman he loves. Great book.
The is a great romance book for western romance lovers!
Ummmm... wow... I'm not even sure where to begin. It started off okay, but the characters & scenes were not developed enough. There was no building of the relationship between the hero & heroine. It seemed like I was reading along, and suddenly they were in love. I felt like I missed something. There appeared to be no transition from one scene to another. The writing consistently seemed simplistic throughout.
I went ahead & gave it 3 stars, because I thought the basic plot was good... just very underdeveloped. I'm not sure if I'll read any of her other books.
Cassie Edwards has outdone herself once again! She makes everything so easy to imagine! Another true love story she has conjured up to send you on a wild adventure!
