A Heritage So Very Different From Her Own, But One Profound Connection ... Ariana loves her life--her parents, her little town, her job as the town's schoolteacher, her students. But one evening after classes are done and she prepares to hurry home before a blizzard hits, her whole life changes in an instant.The two rough-looking men who abduct her and take her far from home and family make no response to her frantic questions--"Why me? What are you going to do? Where are you taking me?" Held hostage in a camp of bandits, Ariana's emotions swing between terror and boredom as days stretch into weeks.And then the boss's son appears in the doorway of her cabin. Does this mean she will never see her mother and father again, the two who had so lovingly adopted her as an infant and raised her as their own? Will she ever wear the wedding dress so carefully saved for her--her one link with her birth parents, now long dead?

Great read!!!

Jun 11, 2016

I've been re-reading Janette Oke's books this summer. I loved them as a girl and for the most part have been happy to find they still are an entertaining and light read. This one was a big exception. I was shocked to find this story is basically Stockholm Syndrome elevated into romance! I see that the author was trying to set up some sort of star-crossed lovers idea and tried hard to make the male lead, Laramie, NOT a kidnapper, abusive, etc., but it didn't work. Instead, it felt like much of the novel centered around elevating a naive young woman's mistreatment and how she then fell for her captor. I hope I never read this one as a young person!
