Indentured servant, Sarah Strong endures challenges of hardship and injury while traveling with her charge to New Hampshire. Many times she comes face to face with the danger of almost losing her life but when she meets White Thunder, she must also face the danger of losing her heart as well. White Thunder has become a solitary Seneca Indian vowed to find his beloved wife and unborn child's killer regardless of how long it takes. But once he stumbles upon a mysterious English woman washed up on shore, White Thunder finds that his life's purpose just might be changing. Seneca Surrender takes place in 1755, in the Lake George area of the New York colony. Fighting between the English and French threaten the Seneca tribe as both sides try to convince the Seneca to join their efforts. Fifteen years of searching and White Thunder is still no closer to finding his wife's murderer. Vowing to avenge his wife's death, White Thunder wants nothing to do with the European conflict surrounding his tribe. Still mourning the death of his wife, White Thunder stumbles upon an unconscious English woman barely alive. Unable to leave her to die, he hides her in a save place and assist her in her recovery. Sarah regains consciousness to find herself in the care of a Seneca warrior and without her memory. Sarah's memory slowly returns reminding her that she still has a five year contract to fulfill as a servant. The pair begins to fall in love even though they are both aware of their cultural differences, the taboo surrounding their relationship and the fact they are both tied to past obligations. The historical romance, Seneca Surrender transported me back to colonial America in 1755. Gen Bailey creates endearing characters that come to life in her stories and Seneca Surrender is no exception. The characters in this story show genuine emotion as they react consistent to their personality bringing them to life in the eyes of the reader. The hero, White Thunder and heroine, Sarah easily accept their given situations and remain true to the obligations they have vowed to fulfill even while enduring hardships and life threatening challenges. At the beginning of the story, White Thunder values avenging his wife's death most in life causing him to live a shell of a life for the previous fifteen years. However, throughout the story he displays internal growth as he slowly begins to allow his heart to awaken and open to his developing feelings for Sarah. The conversations between White Thunder and Sarah are enjoyable and thought provoking as they demonstrate the cultural differences between the Europeans and the American Indians during this time period. Readers that enjoy a well developed romance with adventure and true to life characters will love Seneca Surrender. Marilyn Wigglesworth

In 1755 in the Lake George area of the New York Colony, the Seneca tribe struggles to survive the war between the Europeans that engulf their continent. Warrior White Thunder mourns the death of his wife with plans to avenge her murder. However, his travels are interrupted when he comes across a half dead while female. Although he loathes the French and the English, he takes the woman to a nearby cave to heal her. When she regains consciousness, she suffers from amnesia. As she heals and begins to remember that she is an indentured servant on her way to the New Hampshire colony as a companion to Marissa, Sarah Strong has fallen in love with her rescuer as has White Thunder with her. However, she has a contract to fulfill and an Anglo-Indian relationship is taboo The second Warriors of the Iroquois (see Black Eagle) historical romance brings to life the cost of the French and Indian War on the Seneca and the colonists with the events, time and place superseding the love of the two protagonists. White Thunder and Sarah are fully developed characters who each understand their love is taboo but don't care. Readers who prefer a historical saga supported by a romance will want to read this entertaining mid eighteenth century North American tale. Harriet Klausner

If you read Black Eagle, this is the same book only with a different title.
