From the Inside Flap
In this dazzling prequel to the "New York Times bestsellers The Cowboy and The Texan, Joan Johnston takes us back to a time when Texas was a young and wild republic, and three strong-willed sisters carved out a destiny that would spawn two legendary dynasties. Here is the spellbinding tale of a woman captured by Comanches--and of the proud warrior who vows to make her love him.
Born to a white father and his Indian bride, Long Quiet believed his destiny lay with his Comanche brothers. But his heart secretly belonged to Bayleigh Stewart, daughter of the richest cotton planter in Texas, who'd been abducted by a marauding brave and sold to the highest bidder. For years he'd searched for the violet-eyed beauty, and now a strange twist of fate led him to her.
Called Shadow by her captors, Bay had almost given up hope of rescue, when a rugged stranger in buckskins appeared, risking his life to bring her home...and awakening a passion that burned hot and true. Bay knew her place was with her family. But Long Quiet hadn't found her only to lose her again. He had to convince this woman--his woman--that her true home was with him... as together they would fight for a love strong enough to bridge two worlds....

Comanche Woman continues the story of the second Stewart sister, Bayleigh, who is abducted by an Indian at the end of Frontier Woman. In that novel, she is a meek, quiet young woman who is often overlooked by her overbearing father and when compared to her forceful older and younger sisters. The reader is left wondering how gentle Bayleigh will survive her capture and endure her subsequent life with the Comanche.
Joan Johnston is known for creating vivid characters and thoughtful introspection. She certainly does not disappoint in her character development of Bayleigh Stewart, who is called Shadow by her Comanche captors. Shadow has learned to put aside all that she has known as the wealthy daughter of a plantation owner in order to survive her harsh new life as a slave to Many Horses.
Unbeknownst to Bayleigh, someone has been relentlessly searching for her since her capture three years ago: the half-breed Long Quiet, also called Walker Coburn. Torn between two worlds, he has loved Bayleigh in secret since he saw her years ago at a ball in Boston. Since she no longer is part of that world, he longs to rescue her and give her the love that he has held only for her.
Their journey to each other is tempestuous and filled with the emotion that one comes to expect from Joan Johnston. The reader genuinely comes to love and care for these characters; this particular reader actually sighed with disappointment when the novel came to its poignant conclusion. (I didn't want to say goodbye to Bayleigh and Long Quiet!) Share their journey also by reading Comanche Woman. You will not be sorry.
