It starts when Carolyn is 11 years old and stranded in the deserted prairie land of Montana where her caravan was heading across the Bozeman Trail when a Cholera epidemic strikes and kills her loved ones. A whirlwind appears and leads her to trip over a young Indian (Lone Arrow). Together they seek shelter in the mountains for the night where she takes a small bit of the treasure in the mountains. After that night, Lone Arrow leads her to the Fort and disappears.
Fast Forward 8 and a half years later...
Carolyn has been adopted by a couple in Bozeman, Montana. Her family is suffering financially and the bank is threatening to foreclose on their property.
Carolyn realizes after all these years that Lone Arrow was right, the bit of treasure she took is cursed and has cursed her family. She has to return it to the mountains. She seeks out Lone Arrow to take her back to the mountain. Along the way Carolyn and Lone Arrow fall in love, but also bicker and argue and have a series of funny misadventures on their travel to the mountain. A great fast-paced read!
Eight and a half years later ...
Carolyn had been adopted by a kind couple in Virginia City, Montana Territory. But luck had been bad for them. They would soon lose their land if they did not pay the bank soon. Carolyn realized that unless she returned the gold arrow head she had taken from the sacred cave, all would be lost. Thus she traveled back to the Bighorn Mountains and into Lone Arrow's life again.
Lone Arrow, like his father before him, was the speaker and protector of the mountains. He was the chosen one to guard the sacred treasure cave. His guide was the spirit of the mountain who took the form of a small whirlwind. Lone Arrow wanted Carolyn as his wife, but did not trust her. She insisted he take her back to the cave and would not say why. He thought she wanted to steal the gold from the mountain spirit. A battle between his love and honor began.
***** This story was enchanting from the beginning! I hated to see the book end! The story focused on the main couple and there was little distraction from other sources. This is as a story should be! There was a sub-plot and a pair of co-characters to keep everything moving along smoothly. Here is a book that will capture your attention quickly and never let go! Highly recommended!...
Almost a decade later, Carolyn's adopted parents face foreclosure of their land after a string of bad luck. Carolyn believes her pilfering a gold arrowhead from the sacred cave has caused the misfortune. She returns to the Bighorn Mountains to find Lone Arrow' in order to return the stolen item. Lone Arrow is protector of the mountains especially the sacred treasure cave. He wants to marry Carolyn, but seemingly distrusts her more than he loves her.
Fans of Indian historical romances will want to read LONE ARROW'S PRIDE as the story line focuses on the relationship between Carolyn and Lone Arrow. The tale never loses sight of the prime theme as if the plot was the minimum but critical prime path of a pert chart. The lead couple is a delight and the support cast provides either depth to understanding the key duet or propels their tale forward. Karen Kay furbishes a strong tale that deserves plenty of kudos.
