"K.C. saves the greenhorn and later he must save her"
Doctor Eli Hosea never chose sides. He helped all who
needed. When he helped deliver the Comanche chief's son, he
was awarded honor and the gift of the slave K.C. Keeping
her identity a secret by disguising as "the boy" and
doctor's apprentice was the only way for her to remain safe
in Peaceful, Texas which was an outlaw town.
After Rico's gang leaves, K.C. is searching for valuables
on the body and realizes that Christopher Goodwin is still
alive. As she works for the town doctor, she brings him
home to heal.
Christopher is finding his self-esteem battered. He was not
able to save his sister and now he is finding himself
falling in love with a teenage boy! Only later to find KC
is a young woman and in need of rescuing from the Comanche
Red Buffalo. He will not fail her now, even as he knows he
is no match for a seasoned warrior.
While she gives us a look into the Comanche lifestyle as
well as the harshness of life in unsettled Texas territory,
Ms Hendricks weaves a complicated tale where situations
seem to change daily. The relationship between KC and
Christopher grow as they grow and adapt to the changing and
violent world around them.
