CRThe narrative is about a white woman, Luci Garland, who is kidnapped after a stagecoach is attacked by a band of Lakota’s. Golden Eagle, the chief’s son, is the leader of the band and the one who finds her hidden and takes her hostage instead of killing her. Golden Eagle is immediately enamored and protects her, changing her name to Morning Star.

The story chronicles the hardships of Morning Star, the eventual adapting and acceptance into the tribe, the continued treaty breaking of the white man and eventual Indian Wars. Then the tribes response and Morning Star’s part in the outcome is central to the story.

I have always enjoyed reading novels with a historical setting, especially of native Americans. I do get disturbed at the atrocities that were done to them. Although I enjoyed the story M.B. Tosi wrote in THE CRIMSON PATH OF HONOR I do question her artistic license pertaining to the dialogue. I felt it was a little unbelievable in parts, however we do know the Native Americans were much more intelligent than they were given credit for.

I do recommend the book as it is humorous at times, romantic, heart tugging and captivating overall.

I received this book free from WestBow Press a division of Thomas Nelson, for an honest review.
