    Wonderful story!

    Charity Edmondson is a young, beauty with long redhair. Wicomechee is a handsome Shawnee warrior. Wicomechee finds Charity at the river near her homestead and he realizes she is the "treasure" his grandfather, Eye of the Wolf , told him he would find there. He takes her with him, as her family has either been killed or has run off,...but not until a very merry chase has ensued.Charity's cousin Emma also is taken along but she is most willing due to the arrival of her lost love Colin, long thought dead.Charity's Shawnee name is Red Bird, hence the name of the story. The love story is filled with danger and battles to which Charity has never seen. Charity was very sheltered in her life, so much comes as a great surprise to her. This is another truly wonderful book by Beth Trissel. I highly recommend this to everyone!

    Revolutionary Passion!

    Charity Edmonson is furious that her mother is insisting she marry someone she considers dull and boring. She would marry for love, but in Revolutionary America such is rarely the custom. However, this beautiful woman's life is about to dramatically change when a Shawnee war party attacks Charity's village, murdering her father and brother. Charity doesn't have much time to mourn her losses, as a Shawnee native named Wicomechee, or Meechee as she comes to call him, falls in love with Charity's beauty and spunky nature immediately.

    Another native, Chaka, would have Charity for a wife, but his methods are cruel because he believes he can possess her by force and brutality. He is in for some very strong rebuffs in some very undignified scenes that increases the reader's empathy and support for Charity and Meechee's future together. Charity is not an easy catch however, and her humor and rebellious nature are amusing and anxiety-producing depending on the scene. She's one very modern woman!

    But the romance is slow to spark, although the physical attraction between the two is immediate, for Charity observes over time the merciless nature of these warriors whose anger is fueled by the death and injustice they have repeatedly endured at the hands of the white men. So scalping and brutal attacks are a reality that strikes Charity as bestial and beyond the pale. For now, Charity is helping her friend, Emily, who was also kidnapped and is pregnant. Even that part of the plot is complex, when Emily meets a former lover, Colin, who escaped from a perilous situation to become a Shawnee warrior.

    The story escalates when George III's red coats catch up with the natives, and all are forced to face their prejudice and hatred. Beth Trissel knows how to craft a simple but engaging story that produces mixed emotions and thoughts in the reader, with a surprising ending that the reader never suspects is coming. Very nicely done, Beth Trissel!

    rousing romantic adventure will reward history lovers

    Charity Edmondson flees the prospect of an unwanted marriage to a childhood friend only to become the captive of a Shawnee warrior. Once her life becomes entwined with that of the handsome and passionate Wicomechee, her destiny becomes one with the proud Shawnee. Her family and friends have suffered great losses at the hands of the Shawnee warrior tribe, and Charity has a great fear of her Indian captor and his clan. However, his patience, honor, and surprising gentleness soon show Charity that there is more than one side to the conflicts between the Shawnee and the settlers and their army. Wicomechee claims Charity for his wife, and she soon carries his child. They face many perils on the journey to the lodge of Wicomechee's grandfather, and their enemies are numerous and varied in their harmful intent. The man Charity once feared becomes the man whom she cannot live without, and the two of them forge an undeniable love and unbreakable bond. When the truth of Wicomechee's true heritage is revealed, many lives are changed and the future becomes uncertain. Will the bravest of warriors leave the life he has always known to protect the woman he loves more than his own life? With "Red Bird's Song", Beth Trissel has painted an unforgettable portrait of a daring and defiant love brought to life in the wild and vivid era of Colonial America. Highly recommended for lovers of American history and romance lovers alike!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this read...reminded me a bit of the "Clan of the Cave Bear" series, and I wish there had been more to this book!

    A bit of the "occult" or "supernatural" mixed into the lore of an ancient indian tribe...a young boy has visions, and premonitions, shared with (and by) his elders. Great story line involving several generations of the tribe members, and plenty of adventure for the reader.

    Avid reader

    Very enjoyable story. Having grown up in the West, I had felt I had knowledge of the interactions between early Americans and the Settlers. This gave a different perspective.....showing how love is truly blind to differences of birth, upbringing, etc. An interesting weaving of many lives of early Americans into a single outcome. Recommend for anyone looking for an easy blend of history, friendship and romance.

    Emilee

    sings " take a breath and take it deep calm yourself he says to me if you play you play for keeps just take the gun and count to three I'm sweating now, moving slow no time to think my turn to go and you can see my heart beating, you can see it through my chest, that I'm terrified but I'm not leaving, I know that I must pass this test so just pull the trigger, say a prayer to yourself he says close your eyes sometimes it helps, and then I get a scary thought that he's here means hes never lost, and you can see my heart beating you can see it through my chest that I'm terrified but I'm not leaving i know that I must pass this test, so just pull the trigger as my life flashed before my eyes and I'm wondering will I ever see another sunrise so many won't get the chance to say goodbye but its too late to think of the value of my life, and you can see my heart beating you can see it through my chest that I'm terrified but I'm not leaving I know that I must pass this test, and you can see my heart beating, no you can see it through my chest, good I'm terrified but I'm not leaving, I know that I must pass this test, so just pull the trigger"
