A Cheyenne warrior bent on vengeance.
A pioneer woman bent on fulfilling a dream.
Until their paths collide.
After fleeing her abusive uncle, Anna is determined to reach the city of her dreams. But White Eagle and his fierce warriors take her prisoner. Anna attempts a harrowing escape, but her savage captor is determined to have her at all costs and forces her to be his wife. Has God forgotten her, or does He have plans of His own?
A man with a boot in one world and a moccasin in the other, White Eagle is disillusioned with his faith after a minister leads a massacre on his peaceful tribe. Where is his God? He’s definitely not with the white men who are slaughtering his people. But White Eagle also can’t give in to the idolatry practiced by his fellow tribesmen. Only the Truth can set him free.
And it’s found in beautiful Anna’s carpetbag.
To start I can say I loved it and it was painful to put it down. I had no idea what I was getting into when I was frustrated the other night, wanting to finish another book but needing to read something on my Kindle to keep the dark in the room so others could sleep and chose this one. I’ve been meaning to read it, I’ve just been carried away with other things, but I had no idea on what I was missing out on. This book rocked my heart and soul.
Sandi Rog is completely new to me, but you better believe I’m going to check her backlist and look for more in the future from her pen and keyboard. Oh my goodness what a way to write a story! Walks Alone is the Indian name given to our heroine and it brings out so many more deeper level issues than just a name and just a physical sense. Walks Alone is a story about your life and interaction with others on a day to day scale, but also in the long haul. It is about your relationship with Christ, but also you relationship with your spouse.
Descriptions bring the sights and sounds to life right out of the text. I kept thinking in my mind toward a Sully/Michaela type of situation, but our Jean Marc is so much more than that. This book deals with a difficult smear on our American history’s past, but it’s a story that should be told. The manner in which it is told shares different views and it is amazing relevant to situations carried over even in today’s time. Sandi Rog is a vivid storyteller and I’m completely enchanted yet again by the things coming from WhiteFire Publishing.
