Winter Fire by Kathy Fischer Brown

Winter Fire by Kathy Fischer Brown

Book Description

When Ethan Caine pulled the unconscious woman from the half-frozen creek, he had no idea that his world was about to explode. Dressed in quilled doeskin of Iroquois design, she stirred up dark secrets from his past. At the same time, she was everything he desired. But she was more Indian than white, and on the run for murder. He needed to know the truth. He needed to find it within himself to trust her. Banished by the Seneca Indians who had adopted and raised her, ostracized by the whites in the settlement, Zara Grey wanted only to be accepted. "Ethancaine" treated her with kindness and concern. It was easy to trust him. But her Indian ways disturbed him, and her heart she would always be Seneca.

Brenda's Review

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.

Butterfly Review Points

About the author;

As a child Kathy wanted to be a writer when she grew up. She also wanted to act. After receiving an MFA in Acting and playing the part of starving young artist in New York, she taught theater classes at a small college in the Mid-West before returning home to the East Coast, where over the years, she and her husband raised two kids and an assortment of dogs. During stints in advertising, children’s media publishing, and education reform in the former Soviet Unions, she wrote whenever she could. Her love of early American history has its roots in family vacations up and down the East Coast visiting old forts and battlefields and places such as Williamsburg, Mystic Sea Port, and Sturbridge Village. At the same time, she daydreamed in history classes, imagining the everyday people behind all the dates and conflicts and how they lived.

Claiming her best ideas are born of dreams, Kathy has written a number of stories over the years. Her first published novel, Winter Fire, a 1998 Golden Heart finalist in historical romance, was reissued in 2010 by Books We Love, Ltd.

When not writing, she enjoys reading, cooking, photography, playing “ball” with the dogs, and rooting on her favorite sports teams.
