Rock and a hard place

This work was thought provoking on many levels. The difficulty presented to the main characters could be viewed through the prism of today's reality or the immediate post civil war necessities. I would have welcomed a little more development of both characters IE:, life as a captured woman in an indigenous camp and as a minority in a brutal post war frontier. I will be looking for more from Rita Hestand.
I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for this review.

Certainly different

I don't know what I was expecting but it sure wasn't this! A story so wrapped in confused thoughts I wasn't sure what to think? A white women stolen by Indians ( same old standard of judgment) made to take back by another tribe along with her Indian baby by two black men ( what in the world??) the whole thing was so out there in so many levels I was jerked back and forth in my emotions. I gets tiring to read story after story about the Indians killing whites. But this wasn't just about this it was about her abuse by one set and then traded to another. Finding happiness and then being given to two black men to be returned back to white people. Black white red it was again the separation of how people treated each other. It's a sad story. Deeply sad. Because it echoes even today in our lack of acceptance. The performance was good. I did not rate the story higher because it's too short! Frankly your not given enough to get to know the characters and the little you do leaves to much open ended for me. I would have liked more back ground and more depth to it. I received this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review.
