Savage Autumn
Savage Autumn is the debut novel in Savage Seasons series. The book tells the story of Joanna James, the book’s heroine, and her twelve-year-old brother Taggert (Tag). Their mother, Althea, had just passed away, and their father, Russell, had gone for nearly one year on business. The two are left alone and have to live independently, waiting to see if their father will show up one day.
Shortly after their mother’s death, Russell’s sister, Margaret, and her husband, Howard, show up at Joanna’s home. The two have no intentions to take care of them but to control various properties owned by Joanna’s father.
Margaret is too much into the money, while Howard wants to get his hands on Joanna. Soon, Joana tries evicting them from her home, but they give her a fake letter indicating that her father is dead. Now they are left to deal with their evil aunt and uncle, who have no sign of leaving at all.
Howard and Margaret use this letter to be chosen as the legal guardians of the children, where he can now gain full access to Russell’s money. Immediately after their request is approved, they start treating the children like trash. The children cannot take it anymore when Uncle Howard starts making sexual approaches to Joanna.
However, Joanna later receives a letter from her father Russell stating that he is alive but severely injured after a boat accident. In the letter, Russell is also sending for them to join him in Oregon. The two start planning how to leave home and go live with their father. However, all the plans are interrupted soon when Howard finds the letter after attempting to rape Joanna.
They are then locked up in their rooms as prisoners. Later with the help of their two long-serving servants, they manage to escape, and since the ships are being watched, they can’t travel by ship and choose to use the wagon train.
They are lucky to find one wagon train heading to Oregon town just in time before their aunt and uncle notice their disappearance. This is the part where the adventures and story start. Soon the train is attacked by an army of Indians, and they wipe everyone from the train.
Windhawk, a tall young leader of the Blackfoot tribe, soon comes to Joanna’s rescue and takes her from the captivity. However, she does not believe him and thinks that he is one of the attackers. Windhawk lays her gently back on a buffalo robe and which makes her feel safer.
Later, with kindness, care, and patience, Windhawk proves his good intentions and is determined to fight until Joanna loves him back. The two get to know each other, and then Joanna’s tension eases. However, she is so angry for not knowing where his brother is, but after finding out that Tag is being held in prison by Running Elk, Windhawk leaves his village to rescue him.
Later, when she is interrupted by one of Windhawk’s men, she doesn’t understand him as the villain and starts fighting him, thinking he killed her brother. For Joanna, this is an entirely new world she is not used to and, at first, resists only to fall in love with Windhawk and start a new life together. However, her missing father still haunts her a lot despite their love. Will she still find her long-gone and ill father?
The story is an incredible and entertaining journey, and you like the romance between Joanna and Windhawk. The book has strong and extremely amazing characters. Windhawk is a compelling character and surprisingly patient and wise with his actions and words.
Heart of Texas
Heart of Texas is a story of a family that has lost everything during a civil war and try to move to Texas in the 1800s. Casey, her brother, and her young sister are left to travel to Texas after their father dies in an accident. They were leaving home after their mother’s brother died and left a ranch to them and are more determined to claim it.
On reaching the river, they become stranded and are confronted by a cowboy pulling their little sister under his arm, blaming them for being careless and letting her wander alone. Casey is wet and dirty standing in the river, and she is very much aware that she can’t fight this cowboy or own the Texas territory left to them quickly.
However, she has no other choice but to continue with the journey. Later she reveals who she is and why they’ve come to Texas, and Gabe advises her to go back to where she came from. The owner of Casa Mesa wants their land and is ready to do anything to acquire the ranch. Gabe gets a taste of Casey’s stubbornness as she does not want to go back as she has nowhere else to go but the ranch to start a new life with her siblings.
He later comes for their help and works on the ranch while teaching them the details they need to know. Will Casey eventually acquire the ranch? O’Banyon tells a story of the difficult life awaiting anyone who goes up against the wildland and the people who own it. She develops the characters well as the story unveils, and the adventures will pull you in and keep you turning pages to the end.
The main themes in the book are family loss, trials, new beginnings, and heartache. Casey is a strong and determined character, and she does everything she can to start a home in Texas. Even after her father’s death, she moves forward and takes care of her brother and sister.
Gabe is a kind-hearted man, and I liked how he chose to help Casey and her siblings
