When Amanda Pearson's fiance tells her on the eve of their wedding day, that he no longer wishes to marry her, but is in love with her best friend, instead, she decides to travel to the northwest to a Quaker mission set up by some people she knows, and work teaching the Native Americans about God. Her father sells their home, and goew with her, hiring a guide to show them the way. Little did they know how dangerous and hard travel would be, and how many heartaches would hit so close together. Surrounded by an unfriendly war party, Amanda grabs her father's Bible, which had fallen out of her pack, and suddenly the war party started backing away.
Gravely ill, she is found by Buck McFadden, son of a white man, and Two Feathers, a Nez Perce` woman. He took her to his friend's cabin, where Jim's wife who was the daughter of a Medicine Man took care of her, until she was well. Then she asks him to either guide her, or find her a guide, to go on to the northwest.
I'd give this book 5 stars. Ms Brunstetter has managed to compine action, descriptions of beautiful scenery, courage, and romance, along with a Christian story.
I was given a copy of this book to read and give an honest review. No other compensation was given. All opinions expressed here are my own.
