"It is 1864. The frontier cavalry has been withdrawn for the War Between the States, and the able men have enlisted, leaving the white and free black families in the valley of the Brazos River very much on their own. The Comanches and Kiowas decide to take the opportunity to rid the land forever of these invaders. Adrianne Chastain, a widow and grandmother in her mid-thirties, has been spotted by the Kiowa war chief Satanta. Most of her family is killed in the raid, leaving Adrianne and her granddaughter Lottie captives of the Kiowa. Lottie adapts easily to her new culture, while Adrianne, befriended by some and ridiculed by others, is taught to do a woman's work. Satanta wants her to become a true Kiowa woman and one of his wives, a woman who loves him. How these two, a brutal war chief and a Christian gentlewoman, do come to love one another is an incredible story--as is the spiritual and emotional journey Adrianne experiences while living among the Kiowa."-- Provided by publisher.
