Ariana loves her life as a schoolteacher in a little frontier town. But one evening after classes are done and she prepares to hurry home, her life changes in an instant when a band of rough outlaws abduct her and take her far away from all she has ever known.
Trapped in a small shack, Ariana prays and waits, her emotions swinging between terror and boredom as days stretch into weeks. Still, the outlaws refuse to tell her why they've taken her or what they plan to do.
Then the boss's son appears in the doorway of her cabin. He seems different from the others, but can she trust him? Will she ever again see her mother and father, the couple who lovingly adopted her and raised her as their own? Will she ever wear the beautiful wedding dress so carefully saved for her--her one remaining link to her birth parents?

You probably think the title is weird, but it’s like click baiting- in a way. I read the first two chapters and found myself very bored. Then, Ariana got stolen- I was sucked in. I first picked up the book in 2016, and then again in 2018. I started the book freshly and about three days ago and am almost finished. I am just eleven, but I truly love this book. I wish that it kept on going forever and ever, but sadly the story ended- happily. I think this book is a good book for all ages. And now I sound old.
In 1996 I started to read this book during breaks at work. After the first chapter I couldn't wait for the next break in work. I absolutely love this book.
