I give this book three stars because it is well written. However, it is not to be taken seriously as it is a very soft focus picture of life for a female captive in eighteenth century America. Fortunately for the heroine, Rebecca, she is so beautiful that men fall like trembling leaves at the sight of her. This does get her into trouble but ultimately gets her out of everything too. The hero, Shoki, is the man of everyone's dreams. He is the captor, but it would be impossible to find a more noble person. He is handsome, incredibly brave, athletic, loyal, well liked and GOOD IN BED. And he adores the heroine. Inexplicably, his first wife left him.
This is a good tale and very readable but I could not take it seriously. I suspect that life was a whole lot grittier for female captives in that era, beautiful or no.
Why does no one ever need to use the toilet in these books? Also,Rebecca goes through the most almighty tribulations but still manages to look incredibly beautiful. Most women need a hairbrush at least, but despite the fact that she doesn't have one, her hair is constantly spread about her like a golden mantle. What wonderful genes she must have had.

Rebecca Elliot, recently widowed, is on her way with her younger sister, Kate, to relatives staying in a remote fort. As their party travels at slow pace through thick forest, they find themselves viciously attacked. Rebecca barely manages to fight off one savage when she finds herself taken captive by another. In the melee, she loses sight of Kate.

Rebecca finds herself a prisoner of Shoka, a half-Shawnee warrior who fortunately speaks English. Despite his efforts to make her comfortable in his company, she keeps trying to escape. As they travel on, thrown together to survive in the wilderness, they begin to care for each other. Aware of their growing feelings, they're unable to deny the truth to themselves - and to others. Yet dangers lurk from both native and white men, threatening their new-found love, and their lives. Only following a mysterious white wolf helps them escape the worst dangers. On their march towards the fort, they are forced to defend and fight for each other.

During their journey, Rebecca is re-united with her sister. But how much time will they have together, now that Kate has eyes only for a dashing Frenchman? And with a massacre unavoidable, their lives are once more in peril. Barely escaped with their lives, Rebecca has to confront her past to create her future. But does her future include Shoka?

Ms Trissel spins a very fine yarn with Through the Fire. Her vivid imagery takes you right back into the action. The colours, scents and views tickle the senses. The deep description of scenery and historical setting gave me just the right idea of what Rebecca went through, both physically and emotionally. Ms Trissel knows how to tell a wonderful tale.

A beautifully written love story, with enough dangers lurking to keep us on our toes. Perfect reading material.
