Overview

Samantha Hanover has survived a brutal winter on the North Dakota Plain. Now, with spring in the air, she hopes to put her past behind her—until she meets Rob Reiker, a cowboy surgeon, who somehow triggers a connection between Samantha and Teal-Eye, a woman of times long past.

Teal-Eye, is in trouble. She is far from her home and her people, forever the outsider among the High Mountain Clan, forever lonely. Now, her one chance at happiness, marrying the man she calls Bear, is about to be taken from her, unless she can help Samantha escape from those who would kill her.

Together, Samantha and Teal-Eye, though separated by the immensity of time, must unravel a problem as old as humanity, one of childhood and maturity, one involving a chain of frightened woman reaching from the far distant past into our present.

I’m a storyteller. My skills at writing are subject to opinion, my punctuation has been called interesting, at best—but I am a storyteller. I am, of course, many other things. In seven decades of living, there are great numbers of things that have attracted my attention. I am, for example, an electrician. I can also design, build, and install a range of things from stairs and railings to flooring, and tile backsplashes. I can even giftwrap a box from the inside, so to speak, by wallpapering the house. I’m an engineer, one who has designed computers and computer systems; one of which—during the bad old days of the cold war—flew in the plane designated as the American President’s Airborne Command Post: The Doomsday Jet. I’ve spent seven years as the chief-engineer of a company that built bar-code readers. I spent thirteen of the most enjoyable years of my life as a scoutmaster, and three, nearly as good, as a cubmaster. I joined the Air Force to learn jet engine mechanics, but ended up working in broadcast and closed circuit television, serving in such unlikely locations as the War Room of the Strategic Air Command, and a television station on the island of Okinawa. I have been involved in sports car racing, scuba diving, sailing, and anything else that sounded like fun. I can fix most things that break, sew a fairly neat seam, and have raised three pretty nice kids, all of who are smarter and prettier than I am—more talented, too, thanks to the genes my wife kindly provided. Once, while camping with a group of cubs and their families, one of the dads announced, “You guys better make up crosses to keep the Purple Bishop away.” When I asked for more information, the man shrugged and said, “I don’t really know much about the story. It’s some kind of a local thing that was mentioned on my last camping trip.” Intrigued, I wondered if I could come up with something to go with his comment about the crosses; something to provide a gentle terror-of-the-night to entertain the boys. The result was a virtual forest of crosses outside the boys’ tents. That was the event that switched on something within me that, now, more than twenty-five years later, I can’t seem to switch off. Stories came and came… so easily it was sometimes frightening. Stories so frightening that one boy swore he watched my eyes begin to glow with a dim red light as I told them (it was the campfire reflecting from my glasses, but I didn’t tell him that). Then, someone asked for a copy of one of my campfire stories, which brought me to the word processor. When that was finished, I wondered: could I write something other than technical articles and campfire stories? Something with dialog? “Something with dialog,” when completed, led to: Can I write in the first person? Do an adventure? A romance? Having finally sold a few novels (four, to date, the latest to Double Dragon) plus a handful of short stories, I am living proof that if you work at something for long enough you will eventually get it right.

Within the first chapter I knew I was going to like this story. It flowed nicely not dwelling on mundane detailed surroundings like some authors use. Of course the happily ever after is in place and of course the difficulties leading up to it are there but it is those difficulties that set this story apart from the others. A bit confusing in some spots but never the less a.very enjoyable read!!!!

This book was amazing, completely different from the normal romance stories. The characters are relatable. You can get lost in their lives, I didn't want it to end. But all good things do and the ending was really cute.

I enjoyed this story quite a bit. It didn't just plod along like some love stories do. The author used a very unique twist to the plot that really kept my interest.
