To help those in need was the highest virtue to the Arapaho soul, and Black Sun ever honored the ways of his people. He could not turn away from a woman in need, pregnant, alone and barely alive. No, not even if the woman was white.

    "What are you doing? the voice of wisdom screamed in the back of his mind. This woman had just given birth. She was in no condition to be taken by any man..." A few pages later, a similar scene continues with, 'The baby - ' he rasped, as if suddenly remembering. "Are you healed, Charity? 'Yes...' she whispered frantically, "Yes!" OMG. I came very close to not finishing "The Guardian". In the span of twelve hours, Charity's wagon train was attached and her husband was killed.

A few pages later, a similar scene continues with, 'The baby - ' he rasped, as if suddenly remembering. "Are you healed, Charity? 'Yes...' she whispered frantically, "Yes!" OMG. I came very close to not finishing "The Guardian". In the span of twelve hours, Charity's wagon train was attached and her husband was killed. She was rescued and cared for by Black Sun. The very same day, Black Sun delivered Charity's baby, with just his hands up his skirt. Don't worry, he didn't sneak a peek. A few hours following a very easy childbirth (obviously!) Charity and Black Sun almost became intimate -, and in the same breath, they had to make a run for it, a very physically demanding journey, in order to hide from the Black Foot. And oh yeah, Charity and Black Sun fell madly in love - hours after her husband was murdered in cold blood. Charity is definitely the definition of a "merry widow". LOL... Urgh. It was just terrible. Too much happened too fast, and too soon. Bring on Book #3 in the series, "The Bounty Hunter" by Cheryl St. John. Fingers crossed that this book will be a good one... :P :)

    If there was anyone who could write nerve-wracking scenes (in a good way), it is Elizabeth Lane. This story has enough subplots to keep the story humming along at a great pace. Very pregnant Charity Bennett is traveling along with her minister-husband and a small band of missionaries (and their wives). When Silas, Charity's husband, shoots one of the young braves riding alongside the train, things get ugly fast. In minutes, everyone is dead except Charity (who was told to hide). The angry braves If there was anyone who could write nerve-wracking scenes (in a good way), it is Elizabeth Lane. This story has enough subplots to keep the story humming along at a great pace. Very pregnant Charity Bennett is traveling along with her minister-husband and a small band of missionaries (and their wives). When Silas, Charity's husband, shoots one of the young braves riding alongside the train, things get ugly fast. In minutes, everyone is dead except Charity (who was told to hide). The angry braves burn the wagons and still, Charity stays hidden. By the time the Indians leave, the wagon in which she is hiding is burning, Charity's dress is charred and creating severe burns. Still, she hides until the Indians are gone. Then she jumps from the inferno and falls to the ground and faints. Soon, an Arapaho Indian arrives and finds Charity. Because the Arapaho life path includes giving to others, Black Sun has no choice but help the wounded white woman. However, he hates white people because his white father beat his Indian mother unmercifully until he died. Black Sun has been on a quest for his grandfather. I cannot find a way to describe it in a few words but Black Sun's deep understanding of the Arapaho psyche and his fears of the white man's interference in Indian life are integral to this tale. Readers can emerge from this book with a deeper understanding of the Arapaho and how Indians think, in general.
