Review: Walks Alone

By Sandi Rog
Whitefire Publishing, June 2012

About the Book

A Cheyenne warrior bent on vengeance. A pioneer woman bent on fulfilling a dream. Until their paths collide.

After fleeing her abusive uncle, Anna is determined to reach the city of her dreams. But White Eagle and his fierce warriors take her prisoner. Anna attempts a harrowing escape, but her savage captor is determined to have her at all costs and forces her to be his wife. Has God forgotten her, or does He have plans of His own?

A man with a boot in one world and a moccasin in the other, White Eagle is disillusioned with his faith after a minister leads a massacre on his peaceful tribe. Where is his God? He’s definitely not with the white men who are slaughtering his people. But White Eagle also can’t give in to the idolatry practiced by his fellow tribesmen.

Only the Truth can set him free. And it s found in beautiful Anna s carpetbag.

My Review

I read this book straight through. What an incredible, heart-felt novel! Rich with Native American culture, intrigue, and romance, Walks Alone held me captive to the end. So many desperate choices necessary for survival had to be made, but the things the hero and heroine feared most also made them stronger in the end. The variety of emotions they experienced and the developing love between them compelled me to read on, and more than that, they caused my eyes to well with tears a number of times. I felt the characters’ pain and sensed their relief as their many trials made them stronger once they realized they were not alone, but that God was with them all along.

Walks Alone contains a lot of realism and spiritual depth, which made me think more about my own faith. Most of all, this is a story of unconditional love and finding true freedom in Christ. He wants us to come to Him because we love Him, not because we were forced. This novel is a beautiful portrayal of God’s love for us and shows us why He gives us the freedom to choose. I loved Walks Alone so much that it’s making my favorite fiction list for 2012!

The Kindle version of Walks Alone by Whitefire Publishing is currently available as of January 15, 2012, however, the print version will not release until June. So get a copy now or save your money and get the paperback! It’s worth it either way.
