First, let me say that I stayed up all night reading "Heart of a Warrior" from start to finish. I didn’t intend to, but I couldn’t put it down.
Pelican Book Group offered me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I agreed even though I wasn’t sure I’d like a book about Indian-meets-white girl. In so many such books, it’s hard for me to connect with the characters. However, this book was different. Towan is half white and was educated, rather than a savage who just grunts and makes hand gestures. For the past several years, Towan has been living with his Shoshone mother and her people because he has long-standing resentment toward his white father. And the woman (Christina) isn’t someone he has captured and taken home to his tribe. In fact, Towan rescues her after her husband is killed on the Oregon Trail. She’s pregnant and needs help. At first, she thinks he is part of the group of Indians that attacked the wagon train because he doesn’t speak—and when he does
In exchange for an honest review, I received an ARC for this book.
Heart of a Warrior is a historical romance by Angela K. Couch. Anthony and Christina Astle are pioneers heading west. Anthony is killed; Christina is rescued by Towan. Christina and Towan, the main characters, struggle with their issues. Christina is prejudiced and fearful because Towan is a Half-Breed. Towan struggles with his anger due to his mistreatment by white people. The plot of the story is based how the main characters overcome the differences to find value in each other.
This is the first time I have read a book written by this author. The author did a good job with the plot by showing how the characters overcame their differences. The theme works because the story shows how a person mind changes once you get to know the other person.

A well written love story with two very different characters thrown together with plenty happening along the way to tear them apart. It covers different cultures, families old and new, racism, pride, death, birth and love. Towan (the lead male character) seems like an amazing person and I’m not sure sometimes what he sees in Christina and why he continues to help her. Perhaps that is the key to this story - persistence in what you love. A wonderful story against an Oregon Trail backdrop that will keep you turning the pages.
Thank you for the opportunity to review this book.
