“It is observed that in any great endeavor, it is not enough for a person to depend solely on himself.” ~ Lakota Proverb

Several men have claimed responsibility for killing Custer, but what if it wasn’t a man? What if it was a woman?

They called it a terrible glory and the last great battle for the American West. While the battle of the Little Bighorn was the last stand by Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer against the Lakota tribes, to Lily Sinclair it was the last stand between her old life and her new beginning.

After her in-laws squander away the family fortune, Lily and her husband, Alfred, head out west to the mountains of Montana, the only land available to poor people and far away from the debts haunting them. When a band of Cherokee warriors attacks their wagon train along the way, they kill her husband and take her captive, selling her to a Lakota tribe for the price of several horses.

Widowed Lakota warrior Tahatan has vowed never to take another bride after his wife’s death. However, he soon finds himself forced into a marriage with the outspoken, yellow-haired Yankee, who challenges every thought in his head.

With Custer’s sights set on the hidden gold in the depths of the Black Hills, the Colonel begins his warpath on the tribal villages. Can Lily overcome the demons of her past and defend Tahatan and his people? Or will she betray them all for the actions against her dead husband, killing someone she never believed she would in the process?

Through the Eyes of a Captive is the third beautifully written and compelling historical romance by Angela Christina Archer.

My Review

This is a well-scripted story of Lily Sinclair, who left Washington, DC with her husband, Alfred, to go west.  A rogue group of American Indians attacked their entourage, and she was among the few captives.  They killed all the others in the attack. Her capturers traded her to a Lakota tribe where she had a choice to live under the protection of a warrior or become a slave.  I won’t give you any more of the story so you can enjoy reading the book.

I knew before I even started this book it was one I would absolutely love, and I was not disappointed. First, I am a huge fan of historical fiction.  I also have a love of the adventures of those who lived during the early years of Western American history. Lily was a strong female character (my favorite character type). She was brave and willing to learn the ways of the Lakota.  She met a widowed warrior, Tahatan, who through his kindness and decency, protected her and taught her about the Lakota, and with whom she fell in love.

If you are a fan of historical fiction, romance, adventure, and strong female characters, I recommend you snuggle up in your favorite chair and get lost in the pages of THROUGH THE EYES OF A CAPTIVE.


Author Bio

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! So, who am I? Well, it’s quite simple, actually. I’m a history-lovin’ author who writes in her fuzzy pants and loves her horses! My stories have a pinch of sweetness, a dash of spice, and a dollop of history. Sound interesting? Then slip into your petticoats and curl up on the couch while I transport you to the past!

Growing up in Nevada, reading was always a pastime that took second place to trail riding and showing horses. When I did find the time in my youth to curl up with a book, I found enjoyment in the Saddle Club Series, the Sweet Valley High series, and the classics of Anne of Green Gables, The Box Car Children, and Little House on the Prairie. Although writing always piqued my curiosity, it wasn’t until September 2009 that I worked up the courage to put my passion to paper and started my debut novel. With a love of history, it wasn’t hard for me to pick the Historical Romance genre.

I live on a ranch with my husband, two daughters, and many farm animals. When I’m not writing, I spend my days from dawn to dusk as a stay at home, homeschooling mom. I also work in my garden and take care of my many farm animals, as well as, I love to bake and cook from scratch. While I don’t show horses anymore, I still love to trail ride my paint horse, Honky, as well as, I enjoy teaching my daughters how to ride their horses, Sunburst and Cowboy.
