For the first time, Eyes-of-the-Sky prayed to the white man's God. One look in the mirror told her she was not a Comanche.yet she remembered no other life. She watched the whites who had taken her in after her "rescue," the mother, Hattie, and her handsome son, Joe, and wondered what her life had been like before her childhood abduction. She looked at Joe, who had suffered much and forgave little, and knew longing in her heart. But questions remained: What am I? Who am I?
Jill Marie Landis weaves an unforgettable story about a young woman adrift in two worlds, and her courageous journey to discovery, belonging and love.

Innuendo: A few kisses. This is a book about a cattle rancher and a Native American. The man is "scandalized" to see her bare feet and ankles so it's a very clean book. One of the workers makes some comments about her and tries to kiss her but nothing happens.

Violence: Some punches and wrestling. Also mentions Indian raids and scalping.

Swearing: Don't remember it being a problem.

Drinking, Drugs, or Smoking: None

Age Appropriate: 15 and up. This is a good, clean romance novel. ( )
