Publisher's Summary

As an infant, Running Brook is kidnapped by the Comanche; as a teenager, she is rescued by gentle Quakers and introduced to Christian beliefs; as a young adult, she searches for love and her true heritage.

Discreetly disguised as a boy, Brook travels to Texas with a tantalizing young army captain and his Indian guide. There she finds her father who welcomes her with open arms. But Brook's stepmother and Ram, her handsome stepbrother, resent her. When she accidently discovers Ram's underhanded schemes, she knows that her life is in danger. Isolated on the ranch, is there anywhere she can go for help? Would she dare to turn to Captain Jeremy Grant for help? She had finally found her real family, but had she lost her heritage? This story weaves together adventure, faith, and love in a captivating story.

Historical Romance with Strong Female Lead

Running Brook was kidnapped as an infant and raised by the Comanche until she was 16. Rescued and taken in by a Quaker couple, she's taught about God and learns to speak English. Two years later, the gentle Quaker man tracks down two families that lost infant girls who might be Running Brook. He enlists Captain Jeremy Grant and his friend Dusty to take Running Brook to Fort Worth to reunite with her family.

When the book begins, Running Brook is disguised as a boy and travels with the men to Fort Worth. Along the way, she and Dusty become easy friends, the Indian man reminding her of a childhood friend. She and Captain Grant clash during the trip, and her conflicting feelings for the hard man have her doubting his morals. When she arrives in Forth Worth, she meets a family who might be her own, but they carry secrets that put her in danger.

This was another great historical romance from Barbara Goss! She did a great job portraying the hardships faced by the Native Americans on reservations during that time period. Brook was a strong female lead, and held her own against the intrigue. I especially loved Maggie and Flora, both were motherly characters I could picture in real life. The writing is simple and straightforward, and contains a Christian message.

The narration was well done, Leon Nixon has a great voice and tone. He narrates evenly and not dramatically. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

A Big Story In A Short Audiobook

I received a free copy of this audiobook from AudiobooksUnleashed in exchange for an honest review.
A great historical fiction that told a complete story in a short timeframe. Since her abduction as a child, Brook was mistreated but providence led her to a kind couple who set her life on track. Having originated in Fort Worth, a soldier and his friend were hired to bring her home. Captain Jeremy Grant knows the family and the trouble brewing there. The characters are likable and their story believable. The narration was very well done.

Realistic premise

I enjoyed the sweet story based on the idea of a kidnapped baby. There was a lot of adventure, romance and included realistic characters, some good and others not so nice. That made for an interesting read.

A lonely Native woman finds a new life

I believe this is the first book I have read or listened to of this author's and I really enjoyed it. Brook has been raised by the Comanche and didn't know her past but when she is taken to a Quaker family's home secrets are revealed. This story has lots of suspense , mystery and romance. It is also a clean read with God at the center of some of the characters lives. I like not having to worry if I will be offended by anything in a book, so this has given me a new author I can read and know that it has the elements I enjoy and none of the things I don't.
I received a free code for this book from Audiobooks Unleashed, this review is my own honest opinion.

Good Read

Stolen Heritage was another good read by Barbara Goss. Brooke was taken captive as an infant and was reared by Indians. She hopes to be reunited with her family, find her identity and her true love. This was another great Barbara Goss read and I can't wait to read more by the author.

Heritage is important

This was a sweet story of family and love even in the midst of tragedy. While Running Brook was stolen away as a baby by the Indians, she was finally able to make her way home with the help of others. Her reaction to finding out her name was so sweet.

The narrative was done well.

This Stole My Heart

This is one of my favorite of Barbara's stories. Although I know that I say that as I listen or read another! I listen every spare second I have and yes, I have become a little obsessed with her books. The reason? They speak to me with her gentle words of faith and how it is an integral part of her message but not overpowering. The first pages really tore at my heart but was necessary to set up the background of the main character Running Brook. She is taken by Indians when she is an infant and her mother killed and is raised by them. Then rescued when she was about sixteen by a Quaker family and taught the ways of the white man and being a Christian.
When her rescuers think they have located two possibilities for her real family, she is escorted to Texas by Capt Jeremy Grant and his Indian guide.
What a wonderful journey and with one of my favorite narrators Leon Nixon, the story comes alive. The prologue actually brought tears to my eyes and I could only sigh with the happiness Barbara's stories bring....
