Looking to escape an abusive marriage, Malene jumps at the chance to leave home with her sister and the man her sister is planning to marry. Along the way, Malene meets a Native American man named Many Feathers who from the beginning is determined to court and marry her, but Malene has a lot of growing up to do and needs time to change her ideals before she can accept what her heart knew from the first moment she met Many Feathers. I loved this story! Parts of it are sad, other parts are frustrating, and it doesn't sugar-coat the hardships facing a Native American man in that time period, or the difficulties of a Native American man living as man and wife with a white woman, but I loved Many Feathers and his determination to succeed, his freedom from society's unnecessary restrictions, and his ability to show Malene happiness and gift her with a bit of her own freedom from proprieties. In a stiff and formal world, Many Feathers was like a breath of fresh air, and by the end Malene was a strong woman who was worthy of him. Great Read! This book is a sequel to A Christmas Far From Home, a short story that was included in the Sweetwater Springs Christmas collection.

  1. This is a wonderful book! A woman before the turn of the century having this kind of adventure? And there are going to be more of the same coming out soon. I can't wait! E. Ayers has some awesome books, A Rancher's Wife is just one!
