The Untamed is an interesting book about a woman who was captured as a teen and lived five years with an Indian tribe. After being brought back to her cousin and little sister in a peace agreement, she has a hard time finding her niche. A head injury during her capture erases part of her memory of the event, and makes it even more difficult for her to meld her indian ideas with her white memories. Finally her new love helps her through the terror of dealing with a mad man determined to murder any white women who were brought back, and helps her find the truth about why he murders and why she can't remember.
The suspense of this book is very compelling, but isn't something to keep me up nights for weeks afterward. I really enjoyed the book, the characters were sympathetic and real and I consider this an author I'd like to read again.
