Many thanks to Laura and iReads Book Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
This was quite a different read as compared to the previous two books. Ivy was visually disabled and she left the protective circle of her sisters and their husbands to run away and explore the world. But she was kidnapped and soon saved by the Lakota chief Hotah, who was searching for his own brother.
My third book by author Kat Flannery, the story showed the tough times for the native Indians who had to leave their land and make life elsewhere. In such prickly times, two hurt individuals found themselves along with an orphaned baby and Hotah’s niece. Love blossomed quickly along with an insta-family.
The story developed well in some parts where Ivy’s capabilities were shown. In spite of being visually challenged, she could manage to fend for herself and the baby on the wild lands. Hotah provided the support and the confidence she needed.
Her sisters seemed overprotective and babied her to the point of keeping her a prisoner, though I failed to understand why. Both the previous books showed them to be independent and intelligent far beyond their times.
The story has its twists with the wicked brother and the final fight with the general before HEA. At less than 200 pages it gave me a short story about the last sister. Overall, a good read.
I received a free ARC from Laura and author Kat, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
