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.

    A way with words

    I am very impressed by Magnolia Belle's way with the written word. She weaves a story that is complex. But yet is compelling to the reader in such a simple way. She touches the reader's heart by giving life like characters and a storyline that crosses the line in a time when the wild frontier was new and every day was a struggle to survive.
    The story revolves around Lana Cooper, a young girl in the wilds of Texas. Who finds herself smitten by a young Kiowa warrior. You will certainly find yourself enthralled as you follow her struggle to come to terms with her heart. Though her mind tells her to conform to the wishes of her parents, and to marry a solider in the U.S. army.
    Once you read this novel. You will want to pick up more of Magnolia's work. I for sure am looking forward to her next installment in this series that is sure to be a hit.

    I've always loved western romances and this one tops them all! The ending was a little bit heartbreaking, but it was worth it.
