I received a free copy of this book from the publisher to review for BookLook Blogger.
I was hesitant to read this book when I noticed it is “Book Three” of The Indian Path Series. However, I read that each book in the series is about a different group/tribe of Native Americans.
This is the story of Luci Garling and her life from young girl to woman. It follows her from her privileged life in Boston to traveling west and being captured by the Lakota (Sioux) who called the Rocky Mountains their home. Luci faces many trials but continues to put her faith in God throughout the story.
I was really enjoying the story and the characters until just after chapter 28, when suddenly the author created some tragedies that came one right after the other that I felt rushed and felt that Luci, (known as “Morning Star” by this time), was also rushed and her response to the tragedies seemed very unrealistic to me, even for a strong woman. It seemed to me that Ms. Tosi wrapped everything into a neat, little package for the outcome she desired, but it wasn’t necessarily the outcome her readers (at least this reader) desired.
All in all, I enjoyed the story, but found myself quite disappointed in many of the author’s decisions. However, I do recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a story that has some good information about the life of some of the Native American people, as well as anyone who enjoys a story where faith in God is exemplified and shared.
