This book is great!
This is one of my favorite dear America books! I like the theme of this book and how it takes place in the 1700's. Catherine struggles with her fears and trials after being kidnapped by Indians. She soon falls in love with Snow Hunter, one of the Indians who was once an American. I found the ending very disappointing though, because it's like everyone she found to love died😖I also found that this book is very fast paced
