Maria Holloway is a captive.
Abducted by Lakota, and forced to live with the people who killed her husband, the pioneering woman refuses to give up hope that one day she’ll be saved.
Far from civilization, and everyone she knows and loves, she’s given in marriage to a Lakota warrior. Full of bitterness and despair, she turns to God for help, wondering if even He has abandoned her. She tries to escape but is returned her enemy over and over again.
Bodaway is angry and alone. His wife died and left him to raise three young children on his own. With no plans to remarry, he prefers to lead a solitary life, keeping to himself. That is, until Maria Holloway is thrust into village life. Suddenly, he finds himself saddled with a new wife, one he never wanted. He doesn’t know what to do with her, or how to act. And feels like a stranger in his own home. But when tragedy strikes, and he thinks she is lost to him forever, his true feelings come flooding to the surface.
Can love blossom between two avowed enemies?
Journey back once again to the quaint little hamlet of Cutter’s Creek, Montana Territory. Where love is true, and no one’s a stranger.
