Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lana | 2/11/2014

    " It has been a while since I read this book, but I can still vividly remember it. The story captured me from the start and held me till the end. The story of Cynthia Ann Parker was one that broke my heart when it came to an end. It is sometimes graphic in it's portrayal of life and the cruelty that humans can inflict on other humans but it also has tender moments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassie | 12/19/2013

    " A really fascinating look into the lives of Indians and a white girl kidnapped by the Indians in the 1800s. Some parts are disturbing because of how violent the Indians were--no wonder they were sometimes called savages--but I really enjoyed it anyway. "

    " My friend pressed the cheapest looking mass paperback in my hand and said, "Trust me--don't judge it by how it looks--it's such a fantastic story!" And it is. I met the author a couple of years ago by chance at an event in St. Mary's City, MD. That was pretty cool. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Patrick | 12/23/2012

    " One of my absolute favorites. A tragic tale of the Commanche Indians. Of particular intrest to me since my great-grandmother was of this tribe. The author is painstaking in her attention to detail and accuracy. The love story of Naduah and Wanderer is beautiful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 2/10/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 8/21/2010

    " My favourite of the various books that Ms. Robson has written. Don't be fooled by the cover -- this is not a romance novel by any means. It's smart, intelligent and based around a real story -- that of Cynthia Ann Parker. "

    " This the story of Cynthia Ann Parker's life after she was captured in a Comanche raid. A facinating story. It earned the Golden Spur Award for best Western historical fiction. "
