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.

A heritage so very different from her own, but one profound connection -

Ariana loves her life her parents, her little town, her job as the town's schoolteacher, her students. But one evening after classes are done and she prepares to hurry home before a blizzard hits, her whole life changes in an instant.

The two rough-looking men who abduct her and take her far from home and family make no response to her frantic questions "Why me? What are you going to do? Where are you taking me?" Held hostage in a camp of bandits, Ariana's emotions swing between terror and boredom as days stretch into weeks.

And then the boss's son appears in the doorway of her cabin. Does this mean she will never see her mother and father again, the two who had so lovingly adopted her as an infant and raised her as their own? Will she ever wear the wedding dress so carefully saved for her her one link with her birth parents, now long dead?

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.
