After reading The Master's Wall by Sandi Rog, I decided to look for something else she'd written. I bought Walks Alone for my Kindle and wasn't disappointed.
Ms. Rog has a way of capturing the imagination and holding it. Walks Alone is the name given to a young woman kidnapped by Cheyenne indians. At age 12 she travels from Holland to New York with her father. His dream is to take her to Denver to begin a new life, but his death changes her future dramatically. Sent to live with a cruel uncle, she grows up longing to escape and find her way to Denver.
An interesting and sympathetic look at indian culture combined with a pleasing romance between Anna and White Eagle. With a French father and a Cheyenne mother, White Eagle's own background is as unique as Anna's. This is a Christian romance, so it carries positive messages that fit into the story without being preachy. A highly enjoyable, moral tale suitable for all ages.
The hard copy is due to be released next month, but can be pre-ordered. Or, read it as an eBook as I did.--Gail Lewis
