This a wonderful story about the luves of a native american woman and a white man. It testifies to the harshness that life can be and also the kindness and understanding of others. I highly recommend this PG13 book to anyone.

I almost stopped reading halfway through. I got to tje point where i just skipped a bunch of enteral dislog that really waas not necessary for the plot. The story in general was good but should have been shortened and tidied up ato keep things interesting an moving.

Lots of violence. But Ruth Ann's books always have violence. I'm just glad that this book was free, that's why I rated it 3 stars instead of 2.

Restoring Hope by Ruth Ann Nordin Native American Series Book 1 In book 2 of the Time Travel Series: A Chance in Time, we meet a young pregnant woman who is an American Indian. Penelope takes her home with her and delivers the young woman's baby. In Restoring Hope we see the rest of the story that leads up to that point and what happens after. Ruth has really put the reader through the ringer on this one. The book will have you in an emotional turmoil at one point when the impossible seems to happen. It is really good just some heavy twists and turns that make it that much more of a ¿can't put it down¿ type book. Woape is running away from a cruel Sioux Indian who captured her and mistreated her. She is rescued by a white man, Gary Milton, who was able to chase the warrior off with his gun. Problem is that this warrior does not give up what he considers his. Woape feels safe with Gary and becomes like his shadow. Through the language barrier of Woape not speaking English and Gary not knowing Mandan a misunderstanding leads in different directions but comes together when they marry. This book made me think how difficult it must be for someone to be where they don't understand the language people speak all around them. It ends up that the language barrier will be one of the smaller mountains Woape will learn to climb. Looking forward to the next books in this series. **This historical Native American Romance is rated R.

One reviewer described it as simplistic. I would have to agree in some sense but add that in many ways it wasn't realistic or true to the times when it was said to have taken place. The author had a good idea and I was part way through the book when I realized that I'd read a portion of this story before in another short story or book by this same author. There were several things that I didn't find realistic; there was a great deal of disdain and fear of the Indians by the whites in this time period, and yet none of that was ever mentioned, it was as if it was a "politically correct" era and these type feelings didn't exist. The Indian woman was welcomed by the whites everywhere she went and no one had a problem with their interacial marriage. I've always read that a half Indian, half white baby during that time period was an outcast to both the whites and the Indians, and a marriage of that sort wasn't given high regard by either race either. I also found it interesting that she dressed in all the undergarments without any type of instruction and just knew how to wear a corset etc when she'd never seen one before. I found all the Indian names a stumbling block. Every time I came across one I found myself hesitating and wondering how to pronounce the unusual spellings. Perhaps if the author had given the correct pronounciations or had used a translated name (such as Running Wolf) it wouldn't have been so distracting. I finally started calling them Sam and George, etc, but it still distracted me greatly from the story line. It was also odd that the Indians all ran away in fear any time a gun was fired and that they only possessed bows. If you didn't get wrapped up in all these type things it was a good read, I just found them very distracting.
