Book Description

1 May 2009
Between Heaven and Hell lies Purgatory, Texas--a town with too few saints ... and too many sinners. IN NEED OF A MIRACLE The road to Hell might be paved with good intentions, but David Walker knew the trail to Purgatory, Texas, was lined with nothing but trouble. Wounded and in desperate need of help, he had survived the treacherous journey to reach the blue-eyed, blond-haired girl of his memories. And in Hannah's arms he discovered Heaven. But torn between the white man's world and his Indian heritage, David wondered if he'd been saved or damned. HE FOUND AN ANGEL The man who called himself Spirit Walker bore little resemblance to the boy who had comforted Hannah during her darkest hours at the orphanage. There was nothing safe about the powerful half-breed who needed her assistance. Still, the schoolteacher would risk everything -- her reputation, her heart, her life -- to save him, for she recognized a childhood bond had blossomed into a love strong enough to overcome any challenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful touching tale 14 Jan 2003
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Following Walker's Widow, this book picks up with and carries on with Hannah Blake and David Walker. Thought a sequel, this book stands alone (just makes you want to run out and get Walker's Widow).
Hannah Blake grew up with a boy named David in an orphanage, but he was adopted by the Walker family. He was torn by the white world that had accepted him and the pull of his mother's people. Hannah grew up to be the local school teacher, though she held that boy her in her heart. David began using the Walker name, but combined it with his Indian Heritage and became Spirit Walker.
When Spirit Walker turns up seeking Hannah's help, he little resembles her childhood friend David, the boy who protected and looked after her in the orphanage. He has brought his nephew to Hannah, because he knows he can trust her to keep him safe, but since he is a half-breed he is putting Hannah at risk. Their attraction is instant and strong, but can Hannah overcome the scars in David's heart and the prejudices of those around them?
Heidi Betts gives you strong, vivid characters that makes you feel their pain, their troubles, that touch your heart. Once you read Heidi's books you will rush out and buy them all and ask how could you have missed this wonderful writer!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another winning western romance 23 Jun 2003
By Kelley Hartsell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Courtesy of CK2S Kwips and Kritiques

Hannah Blake is one of the former residents of the Purgatory Home for Adoptive Children. She spent most of her childhood there. Now she is all grown up and is the teacher at the school in town. She is happy with her life, though sometimes lonely, and is content to go on living as she had. Her only regret was David... The only boy she had ever loved - the boy who had always been there for her when she needed him most as she was growing up.

Then one day David, who now goes by Spirit Walker, shows up on her doorstep! David's half-sister, whom he discovered upon returning to his mother's Comanche village, was in a horrible relationship with a harsh man. She was beaten, abused, taunted and insulted for her Indian heritage, and her son by this man was in no better situation. He was ridiculed for being a half-breed, which raises David's ire. He can't stand to see his nephew suffer for his heritage, as David did growing up. He tries to rescue his family from this situation, in hopes of saving his sister and her unborn child. He was seriously injured and in dire need of Hannah's help.

Hannah hadn't seen him in years, ever since he left town and his adoptive parents to live in his mother's Indian village. She has never forgotten all he did for her as children, and will do anything to help him now when he needs her. David too, has never forgotten the little girl with the sad eyes from the orphanage. So, knowing it could put her job at risk, Hannah will stop at nothing to help David and his family, even if it means following him into Hell, literally---a neighboring town full of criminals and ruffians.

When trouble comes knocking on the door of their hideaway, Hannah and David will do whatever it takes to protect his family, even at the risk of themselves. What neither counted on was that the love they had for one another had not gone away, but grew and matured into something deeper and more powerful. David believes he can never have Hannah, for he was nothing but a no-good half-breed, hated by all, or so he thinks. Can Hannah prove to him he is deserving of so much more, and convince him his heritage means nothing to those around them? Will they overcome their differences to reach the happiness they can only find in each other?

Ms. Betts has once again proven her talent for writing historical romance full of passion and adventure. This was her first foray into the world of Native American romance and she has done a remarkable job! One can see the attention to detail and the research put into this book. She paints a brilliant picture of the life of the times, so much so, one feels to be there.

Hannah and David first captured the attention of this reviewer when they made their first appearance in Walker's Widow, leaving behind a desire to hear more of their story, and the love evident even when they were children. Hannah grew from the frightened young girl, suffering through the loss of her parents, into a stunning woman, strong and proud, who has never lost her zest for life. David was as surly young man when first introduced, but has grown into a powerful warrior of a man, though he still holds onto some of that surliness, until Hannah shows him the light. There two were meant for each other from the beginning, causing the reader to cheer them on to a happy-ever-after.

Ms. Betts' is a force to be reckoned with in the historical romance genre, with her talent becoming more evident in each successive book. She draws out the passion of her characters, and plays on the emotion of those reading the book. This is a wonderful story for anyone who loves a good romantic romp, showcasing all of the elements necessary to a good book.

One will enjoy this continuation of her Welcome to Purgatory series, and will be longing for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars strong Purgatory western romance 18 Jan 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
He knew he needed help or he would die, so half-breed David Walker forces himself to reach Hannah, his friend from the orphanage. In spite of the wound, David survives the arduous trek to Purgatory, Texas where he knows the schoolteacher will nurse him back to health.
Hannah cannot believe the boy who kept her safe and provided solace to her as a little frightened child, now seems more Indian than white. David seems to have vanished replaced by Spirit Walker. However, to Hannah a rose is a rose especially when that flower is David or as he calls himself now Spirit Walker. Hannah knows she loves him and has always ever since he soothed her years ago. She willingly risks her life when his deadly enemy comes to town to finish the job.
The road to Purgatory, Texas means entertaining reading for fans of western romances so with Heidi Betts returning there with HANNAH'S HALF-BREED, fans knows this novel will be just fine. The lead couple is a delightful duo sharing in common love and a willingness to give up everything for their beloved. The arrival of the Purgatory horde (see the other alliteration novels - CALLIE'S CONVICT and WALKER'S WIDOW) will please fans of the author and help entice readers to seek other books like this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great way to begin your reading in the new year! 3 Jan 2003
By Huntress Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hannah Blake had grown up in an orphanage in the town of Purgatory. Her best friend had been David, a half-breed. David had been adopted by the Walkers and was deeply loved by them. Yet often he went to the Comanche tribe to visit his mother's people. Hannah eventually became Purgatory's schoolmarm and David went only by the name of Walker.
Even after years of separation, when Walker needed help he turned to Hannah. His sister, Bright Eyes, had long ago left the tribe with Ambrose Lynch, a white man who claimed he wished to marry her. She lived with Lynch at the Bar L. Their son, Little Bear, was seven years old and Bright Eyes was pregnant again. The problem was Lynch. Due to all his physical abuses she feared for the life of her unborn baby. Walker took Little Bear to Hannah for safety and planned to return for Bright Eyes. However, Fate had other plans.
...* Heidi Betts has already made herself famous in the genre of Historical Romance. This book clearly shows why! Hannah and Walker seemed to come to life as I read their wild adventures. This is a great way to start off your new year! Recommended reading! *...

5.0 out of 5 stars True Love Lasts 14 Jan 2003
By Rose! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
From the time Hannah Blake first met the half-breed boy in the orphanage, she felt he was special. He was her hero, and the only one who seemed to understand how she felt on those lonely nights since she lost her family. David spent many nights by her side, offering her comfort and companionship. During the day, he protected her from the would be bullies and for that alone she would be forever grateful...But there was something else about David. Half-breed or not, he was always special to her and she missed him terribly.
Now, ten years later, and David has returned. Hannah finds she would do anything for him.
David Walker has kept tabs on Hannah Blake. He knows that, with the exception of the Walkers and a few others, he is considered an outcast in the white world. Now going by his Indian name, StormWalker finds himself doing something he never thought he would do...he is asking Hannah for help. The years have been good to her, and David finds that the attraction he felt fot her as a child has matured. He tries very hard not to act on those feelings. Hannah is white, and he is a half-breed. He cannot love her and let her be ostracized by the community. He won't do that to her...But Hannah may have other ideas.
Heidi Betts has taken us to Purgatory, Texas again and gives us the story of David and Hannah. The orphans have grown now, and although they come from different worlds, they are destined to be together. Hannah's Half-Breed is another wonderfully done story that takes you into the heart of David's life and Hannah's problems with getting him to see that they belong with each other. In helping David rescue his sister from an abusive situation, Hannah finds the ways to show David that she cares, and more. Hannah's Half-Breed gets a big Five Star Rating from me. Heidi has done it again, and I recommend this book highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Western Romance 11 Jan 2003
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Since I am new to Ms. Betts I was not familiar with her other characters that showed up in the delightful tale but I plan on changing that!
This was a fast paced romance that was hard to put down. Hannah and David "Walker" have a past together. As children they lived in a orphanage and David was Hannah's protector. He looked out for her even after he was adopted by a local family. This story picks up where "Walker's Widow" left off. David is back and he has brought his nephew to Hannah who is now all grown-up and the town teacher. He is taking a chance since he is a half breed and his nephew is a full blooded comanche boy. It would not look good for her to be keeping company with a man especially a half-breed. Hannah does not see David as a half-anything. He is the man that as a boy looked out for her. He is also the only one that she has ever loved.
This was a great book. I loved getting to know the characters. It was fun reading about these two people getting to know each other again, and falling in love again with each other. I did not feel that I had missed out by not reading any of the other stories by this talented author and that the story stood alone as it was. A great way to pass an afternoon!
