This second book in the Warriors of the Iroquois saga is a well-researched novel set during the French and Indian War. There are author notes at the end of the book, which describe a legend that served as the story's inspiration. The focus on
history, unfortunately, overshadows the action. While there are some bursts of excitement, the pace is too slow to sustain the overall plot.
Seneca warrior White Thunder comes across the half-dead body of a woman as he travels to avenge the murder of his beloved wife. He takes the woman to a secret cave to revive her. When she awakens, it's clear that she's lost all memory. As the days pass and Sarah slowly begins to recover and regain her memory, the two become intensely attracted. But past events stand in the way of any kind of lasting relationship. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Apr., 284 pp., $7.99)
