The Iroquois killed her family and took her when she was but a child. She grew up knowing them as her family. She loved them and accepted their ways. Then she was snatched and pulled back into the white world. But her family — her Uncle Rufus – didn’t love her. He wanted her to marry his son, Jabez; he wanted to collect the reward money promised by Henry Van Gelder, the girl’s grandfather.

The girl was Zara Grey. Ethan Caine nearly fell in love with her at first glance. He’d seen her in town with her Uncle and Aunt. She didn’t speak his language but she tended to understand much of what he said. She fought back against her uncle’s cruelty, escaping while he lay bleeding. She ran over the ice covered river inlet near Ethan’s place. But, the ice wasn’t solid enough and she fell through. He’d been watching her; now he had to save her. He brings her back to his cabin; removes the clothes from her unconscious and frozen body; and gets her warm. In the process, he notices the whip marks on her back. Not long afterwards, they’re looking for her in the death of her uncle. The question in Ethan’s mind is how to get her out of there without being killed for protecting her.

I enjoyed the characters of Ethan and Zara; they seemed well suited to one another. He came to her rescue, but found himself not totally trusting her. At times, she seemed to still want to take off on her own and find her grandfather, as she began to remember small pieces of her past. I believe it to be historically accurate even including the hatred that many people felt for Indians at that time in the late 18th century and during the Revolutionary War. I found it a bit off-putting that Zara understood English even though she wouldn’t speak or indicate she understood for a long time into the story. Some of the words in her language didn’t seem consistent. I rated Winter Fire at 3.5 out of 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars An intercultural romance 23 Dec. 2012
By Dafna Yee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"Winter Fire" was a touching story of two emotionally wounded people who came together and healed each other through the alchemy of a deep and abiding love (even though Ethan fought against loving Zara).

After being captured as a child, Zara was adopted into an Indian tribe and was completely assimilated into their world until she was forcibly expelled for the crime of being a witch. (This was necessary to the story but didn't fit in with what I know of many Indian cultures, who would have honored her for having visions.) She was given over into the custody of her uncle who was a cruel, greedy man who planned to force her to marry his son to get a hold of her inheritance. After attempting to run away, Zara was severely beaten and almost raped by her uncle and ran away again. Ethan saved her when she fell through the ice, learned that she was an outlaw but decided to help her escape anyway. I don't want to say anymore and risk spoiling the story. There are a lot of twists and turns in the storyline as well as a surprise (a happy one) ending.

The writing was very well done with only a few editing mistakes that didn't interfere with the smooth flow of the story. I liked the fact that all the talk in the Indian's language was translated right after it was written. Too often when author's use sentences in a foreign language they are not translated and I find that extremely aggravating. The imagery was exceptionally good and I found that it was very easy to immerse myself in the story.

Reading this book was a very enjoyable experience and I definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fictional Pioneer Treasure! 3 July 2014
By Jacqueline M Piepenhagen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you are an avid reader of early American history, this fictional read will complement all that you have absorbed.

Author Kathy Fischer-Brown has created lifelike characters that live and breathe during the pioneer days of the late 1700's.

Zara Grey's memories of her childhood are gone. As a child she was taken by the Iroquois Indians after her family is massacred. Now she only knows life as it is with her Iroquois family. Fifteen years later, as a young woman, Zara becomes an outcast from her tribe. With her life no longer as she knew it, she must now try to live in the white man's world.

The reward hangs in the balance for years for the return of this white child now woman to her long lost family. Her own uncle, Rufus Grey is determined to collect on her. Little does anyone know his true intent?

Ethan Caine lives with the demons that haunt him. He saves the life of Zara and again fights new demons that threaten to destroy him. When these two cultures collide, Ethan and Zara's worlds are changed forever. You will have to read the book as it is written with intrigue, mystery, drama and a love that can't be broken.

I recommend this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling historical romance 27 May 2012
By S.A. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
From the beginning to the end, "Winter Fire" grabs the reader and doesn't let go. This story takes place in colonial New York, and involves a young woman who was captured by the Senecas and raised by them. Zara is a brave and resourceful woman, and when she meets Ethan Caine, an attraction develops between them. But this is a time when relations between whites and Indians were strained, if not antagonistic. And people captured by the Indians and later released were often spurned by the whites, even their own family. When Zara's cruel uncle, Rufus Grey, tries to force her to do his bidding, she fights back. When Rufus Gray is found dead, Zara is accused of murder. Ethan Caine saves her, much to his peril.

Ethan tries to take Zara to safety, but they both find hurdles at every step. The reader is left wondering if they will ever find happiness.

This book is written so well and is so full of emotion, that I hate to find any criticism of it. But I found myself wishing for a few light moments, even though I know the period and the situation did not lend themselves to sweetness and light. Still, a bit of relief from the heavy ambiance would have been welcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars I "HIGHLY" recommend this book! 13 Jan. 2014
By Brenda Romine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What a wonderful read! I really enjoy how the author took the time to explain the era of the time.I felt like I picture the wonderful woodlands in my head.The characters were all so well sot out that you felt you knew them.I loved Zara's character,so many times I felt her anguish,her love,her fears and her peace. Ethan Cain.... What else can you say about Ethan? He's so damned perfect.He is a caring character,he is a mighty character and pulls no punches.Yet with Zara,he is her saviour,her protector and her love.The things these two go through just for freedom from the people who to harm Zara. The white people and indians,two cultures that collide.And the white people that to press murder charges on Zara knowingly that she was innocent.
This historical story will take you back in time and capture your heart in an era of hard times,of family ties and of a love that is meant to be.I can't say enough how great this story is.It is well plotted and flows so easily that before you know it... You can't put it down.You have to see what will happen next.I "HIGHLY" recommend this book!! You can't go wrong on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved Winter Fire 9 Mar. 2012
By Katie Kindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don't understand why no one else has reviewed Winter Fire. It's a well-crafted story of two misfits, Zara Grey and Ethan Caine. Zara was captured by the Iroquois as a child and lived with them for 15 years. Afterr she's found and brought back to live with a cruel uncle who has promised her in marriage, a marriage Zara does not want. Ethan is considered by the town to be the Coward of Clatkson's Mill. And he's lonely. When Ethan saves her from an icy plunge into the creek and takes her back to his cabin, he sees how badly she's been beaten. But then he learns she's been accused of murdering the uncle. What happens next is the charm of the story. Winter Fire is a nicely done historical romance.
