Beverly Jenkins is one of those authors who always leads me in different directions. When I met Maggie and Ian, I knew that they were bound to fall in love. However, I didn't expect to learn about the plight of the Chinese in the Nineteenth century nor did I expect to learn about the Kaw, a Native American Tribe. "The Kaw were forced into Indian Territory in'73. When they were removed there were less than five hundred members of a tribe..."kawnation
I felt sad and happy when Maggie and Ian married. I thought my adventure had ended. I knew Maggie would become a good school teacher. I felt that Ian would want to put his gun slinging days behind him. Well, I had a surprise coming my way. Ian and Maggie's life starts out more than rough. As a matter of fact, I liked the ending best of all. I will always remember Maggie's quill pens. I just might find some of those quills online to buy or at an antique shop. You never know when a couple of quills will come in handy.
