Captive Heart by Elizabeth Bourgeret Book Synopsis: "You! You killed my son!" her feet moved automatically and no one tried to stop her. She stood before this strong Indian brave and beat with closed fists on his bare chest. "You took my son, my only son," she gasped for breaths between tearless sobs. The Indian stood patiently and quietly while she released her anger and pain upon him. Barely above a whisper she cried, "How am I ever supposed to forgive you?" As she slid down his body in a faint, his strong arms reached out to catch her.
In a time of prejudice, when white settlers ventured out West to expand their territories and the Indian tribes fought to keep what has always been theirs, beautiful and courageous Sarah Dobson gets caught between the underlying battle changing her life forever. Can she forgive the man who took her son's life? Can she learn to love again? Captive Heart is the fast-paced, emotionally charged story of this woman, reeling from the death of her son and struggling against the prejudices she was raised with. Will her faith be enough to carry her through the betrayals and the heartbreak toward a life of her own? Or will she be forced to live a life where her heart is held captive?
