This is a magnificent story about love and two cultures. T'on Ma takes you on a journey back in history around the time of the Mexican-American War (1846-1848) in Texas where two completely different cultures collide. The story allows you to get lost in time and follow the lives of the Native American tribe Kiowa (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiowa for more info on the Kiowa) and the settlers who lived their. T'on Ma means Water Woman. It is the name a Kiowa brave named Two Hawks gave to a white settler he encountered while bathing in a river. Her real name was Lana Cooper and he fell in love with her. This relationship was full of conflict between two families of different cultures and was an enormous strain. A very worthwhile story with great human value.

I am glad this book was free and I did not spend money on it. It could have been a very interesting story if it had been handled differently. The characters seemed flat and unbelievable. I just couldn't find a connection to these people. I felt some of the situations and relationships the characters got into to be completely unrealistic given the time the story took place. I did manage to plow through the book hoping it would get better, but it didn't. The ending was a bit of a stretch and, for me, there were too many coincidences to make it believable. I would not recommend this book.
