Overview

In the sequel to COMANCHE MOON, a devastating loss drives a woman to seek revenge. But she never expected to find love along the way. After a Comanche war party kills her husband and infant son and steals her young daughter, Annie Bryce has nothing left to live for. Held captive herself by a brutal warrior, merely surviving every day is the only act of defiance she can muster. Haunted by guilt for not preventing the Comanche attack on the Bryce family, Texas Ranger Hap Walker is surprised when he stumbles across the captive Annie three years later. Hardly recognizing the beaten down woman at first, he eventually brings her back to the “civilized” world, where she’s met with scorn and gossip by the townsfolk suspicious of her survival. Free of her bonds, Annie finds a new reason to live with the realization her daughter is still missing but alive. Hap agrees to accompany her through treacherous Indian Territory, hopeful to be a part of the new life Annie struggles to build.  In a time and place of savagey and splendor, a saga of passion and courage comes flaming to life.

"This gripping story about the healing power of love will pull at your heartstrings." —Joan Johnston

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Famed Texas Ranger Hap Walker just missed saving the Bryce family from a Comanche war party in 1870, so three years later, when he stumbles across the captured widow, Annie, he feels beholden to her. For Annie, who finds that the pain of captivity has been replaced by the condemnation of a white society that judges her a fallen woman, her remaining hope is to find her daughter among the Comanches. And Hap, increasingly impressed by Annie's gutsiness, is willing to do the foolhardy-roam through Comanche territory to help her do it. Mills writes fine, humane dialogue and makes good use of history, giving her story some taste of the not always attractive attitudes of Manifest Destiny. It's too bad that Annie, who starts out strong and appealing, becomes rather squishy toward the end, finally, it seems, being reduced to her fertility (``Out of loss and despair, he'd singlehandedly made a new life for her. And within her''). (Jan.)
