Really good story. He is a half breed, studied medicine and returns to a small town near his reservation to practice medicine. His adoptive family is wealthy and they support him desire to help his people. The heroine is married to the military agent that the government has sent in to help the Indians. However, her husband is not what she thought he was. He is murdered 2 weeks after she gets to town. she is having a hard time understanding why everyone in town hates her.
The doctor hates her as well as being attracted to her. The story has a lot of twists and turns, mystery, a lot of brutal things happening as the whites fight the Indians, etc. It was a hard time to live during that period and this story helps you realize just how difficult their lives were. Seems as tho there has always been racial tensions from one group or another since time began.
Good story and I recommend it if you like romance but some harsh times as well.
