Widowed and penniless in the Colorado Rockies, Boston-born Laura Cheney turns to Deke Sheridan, a dangerously handsome renegade raised among the Cheyenne, when her newborn son is kidnapped.
©1994 Adeline Catherine Anderson (P)2013 Recorded Books
In this western historical, gutsy, city-bred Laura Cheney is left alone and penniless to give birth and fend off all kinds of danger by her no-good husband in the wilds of Colorado. He is killed by a band of comancheros who come looking for Laura and end up stealing her baby instead. Determined to find her baby, she hires Deke Sheridan, a tracker who was raised by Cheyenne Indians and is known for his gunning and tracking skills. Cheyenne Amber is the tail of their quest to find her baby and how they fall in love along the way. Catherine Anderson does know how to keep the reader engaged and captivated for the entire story and the narrator did an excellent job. I had to forcibly stop myself listening to this book at night so I could get some sleep. This is definitely worth a credit!
I loved the entire book. I hated when it ended. Excitement from the beginning
Laura and Deke were such a sweet couple. He rough and tough and she so Boston. But in the end she learned to love his life and his ways. Knowing that he loved her Son as his own and would die for them both made my heart warm Would love to hear a sequel to this book.
I laughed and I cried
I"m a audible addict. My eyes have gotten really bad so I really hadn't read much in the last 10 years until I discoverd books on CD and Audible. Now I'm a fiend. Other than audio books I enjoy my family, work and dabbling on the computer.
I wasn't sure I was going to like the story but I found myself enthralled with it. There were parts where I found myself crying. Sounds depressing but it's like a good movie. The characters were very interesting and had depth. I wanted to slap Laura and tell her to snap out of it a few times. I think that's the only part of the book I wasn't happy with. She became manipulative and whiney several times to the point of madness.
All in all I enjoyed the story very much. The fact that a man could love a child so much that wasn't his, was heart warming.
Although not my favorite narrator. The narration did not take away from the book at all. This is my first Catherine Anderson. I may venture for another peek..
I read like a madwoman all my life but now I have bad eyes. Thank goodness for audio books
This book is slow and the antagonism went on too long. Other books by this author were much better.
I like westerns and found this book a little tedious for that genre.
Love romance with a little bit of humor and suspense. A Thousand Splendid Suns is one of my favorite books.
If so, this book should get three. This story was awful. The performance was awful. I really wanted a refund. I was actually shocked at how slow the characters were - they had no depth. Listen at your own risk....
