About this title


Journeying to the Dakota valley where her half-Sioux father had grown up, Skye MacKinnon is hired by Kyle Wyndford, who is unaware that she is related to the Native American tribe he holds responsible for his brother's death.


Times are hard in Scotland and Fletcher Mackinnon realizes that he and his family can't survive on the Isle of Skye anymore, so he makes plans to go to America. He was born in Dakota, the son of a Lakota princess and a Scottish laird, who later rescued him from certain death and took him back to Scotland. Fletcher makes arrangements to send his wife and daughter to New Orleans while he goes to Tangier to purchase prime horseflesh for his new homestead in Dakota. Skye Mackinnon and her mother arrive in New Orleans and enjoy the hospitality of the Caldwell family. Skye is proud of her Lakota heritage, but she is warned that not everyone feels charitable towards the American natives. Skye meets Kyle Wyndford and she impresses him with her beauty, charm and knowledge of fine horseflesh. But she is dismayed by his attitude towards the Indians, yet Kyle is charming, too, and he is determined to win over the intelligent and independent lass. Skye and Kyle have a few adventures in New Orleans, but the last encounter they share before leaving for Dakota is a dangerous one, and the couple find themselves united for life, thanks to a half breed named Loup Leveque. Loup wants revenge on Fletcher Mackinnon, who was known as White Arrow by the Lakota Sioux he lived with. Plus, he wants to prove his worth to the tribe by killing Kyle. Kyle leaves for Dakota and Skye accompanies his ailing sister-in-law on the journey, but they keep their relationship a secret. Skye promised her father she would scout the land and find a suitable spot to homestead. When they arrive, Skye is warned about going unescorted because Kyle is fearful of the Indians who had murdered his brother, and also, he thinks Loup Leveque might still pose a threat to her. Little does he know his fear will become a reality. This book dragged too slowly for me. The first half takes place in New Orleans and it just didn't seem to have enough excitement in the plot to propel the story forward quickly. And the character of Skye hit me as a strong willed spoiled brat who had to have her way and impose her philosophy on others, or, initially, that person was not acceptable to her.Gloria Miller -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc.
