"Riveting, passionate, and powerful ... everything a romance should be." (Amanda Quick, NYT best-selling author)
I have long read Catherine Anderson's novels and was thoroughly impress by the audiobooks. The narrator and author deliver a most powerful performance and careful attention is paid to details... I look forward to every book that is written and recorded....
One needs to read Commanche Moon to feel the heart in this story. The author brought tears to my eyes with her deep knowledge of one who has been violated multiple times. Done with heart and style, I think catherine captured the emotional dwellings Amy suffered.
I Hope Catherine takes this a step futher and portrays the daughter who is half breed and what it was like back in the day growing up. I think she will be able to write it well.

This book follows on the heels of Comanche Moon.
It is a book that you are sorry to hear it come to an end.
I read like a madwoman all my life but now I have bad eyes. Thank goodness for audio books
Yes I have already
This is the second book I listened to I like the story and it continues very well from the first book. I wanted to hear more about the people in the first book Comanche Moon and this gave it to me. If the narrator was a little better it would have gotten more stars.
The voice does not match the part of a young girl telling the story she sounds like an old lady.
The ending and climax were exciting.
I like westerns and historical novels. If you like those too then you should read this book it is a good story.
Like its predecessor, Commanche Moon, I enjoyed this tale woven by Catherine Anderson. There were definitely moments of eye rolling over the heroine's repeated prudish stubbornness, but there were also moments of intense grief for her and the suffering she endured. I listened to Comanche Moon a while back, and decided to forego listening to this installment because of my dislike of the narrator. I'm not sure why I changed my mind; apparently, like childbirth, I forgot how painful that experience was until I was in the middle of it again. I cannot listen to another book read by Ruth Ann Phimister. Although she seems to manage voicing the peripheral characters without too much difficulty, she truly mutilates the voices of the main characters in this story, just as she did in the first one. I have a really hard time getting past her halted, stuttering interpretations of the way Swift and Amy communicate; her renditions of the lead players in this story (just like in Comanche Moon) make it very difficult to continue listening. Her version of Amy makes the character sound like an excessively elderly, speech-impaired, whining female that grates on your nerves. I wish it wasn't true, because I do think Catherine Anderson writes a great story. Anyways, if I were you, I would definitely read this one the old fashioned way; I can guarantee more enjoyment if you do so.
I thought that Comanche Heart was good. Not quite as good as Comanche Moon (the first of these two books) but it wasn't bad. But the narration by Ruth Ann Phimister was MUCH better than her narration of CM, making this book more enjoyable for listening, which is why both books get a 4 star rating.
It really helps to read Moon first to get a better understanding of the background of Amy, Swift, and even of Loretta and Hunter, but it can be read (or listened) as a stand-alone.
I thought the story was a little slow and could have used a little more action. I also thought Amy could have accepted Swift a little sooner, but over all, it's a nice story when you don't want to put a lot of effort in to a book.
