Sometimes I agree to review a book before I’ve really read what the book’s about. I put trust in the cover and a quick glimpse of the book description. Let me tell you, I was definitely not disappointed in my choice to review this book! I mean, WOW!
Will Crump, a former Confederate soldier, finds himself trying to leave everyone he knows to escape his nightmares about the war where he lost many he knows. He was also imprisoned and doesn’t hope to experience any of that again. Will finds himself trying to head west, using the forts along the way for safety and to load up on supplies.
Little does he expect to run into a Shoshone Indian woman face to face with a bear! Will comes to her rescue and decides he needs to care for her to make sure she heals from her injuries. When they end up at Leavenworth, he finds a man who speaks her language and they’re able to communicate. Dove, the Shoshone Indian woman, was captured by another tribe and her captor was killed by the bear. Dove finds Will constantly looking after her.
Will promises to help Dove return to her tribe. They actually fall in love along the way while they both go through some near death experiences. What will happen when Will finally gets Dove to meet up with her tribe and family? Will he be accepted and finally be able to marry Dove?
A digital copy of Across the Great Divide: The Search by Michael L Ross was provided by The Coffee Club Book Club. I give this book 5 out of 5 tiaras because I was quickly drawn into the story and I just couldn’t put it down! There are so many twists that pull the reader into the story that it’s easy to feel like you’re right there with Will and Dove!
