Captive Trail by Susan Page Davis

It's been a long time since I've read a historical fiction book describing the life of white hostages in an Indian camp. I found Captive Trail by Susan Page Davis to be a delightful read. It tells the story of Taabe Waipu who was taken captive as a young child. She lived in a Comanche village for over twelve years, but had never fully forgotten her former life. When the opportunity arises, Taabe escapes, trying to find her family. A fall from her horse causes grave injuries. Her life begins a whirlwind of changes when stagecoach driver Ned Bright discovers her, along with nuns from the Ursuline Mission. They work together to for clues to her families whereabouts - only problem is Taabe doesn't remember English.

This was a wonderful book in the Texas Trails series about the Morgan Family. I highly recommend it and am looking forward to reading the others in this series.

This book was provided free for review by Moody Publishers.

Hi Niki!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm not an exclusive reviewer for Moody. I sign up through ACFW to be an influencer for various authors books. Which basically means I read their books and write a review for them. I love the opportunity to read more. :)
