On Order



The Pine Ridge Portraits series opens as two soldiers discover a desperate woman hidden in a cellar, then take her back with them to their U.S. Army post at Fort Robinson. The painful secrets surrounding Laina Gray and her seeming indiffernce toward those who try to help her will touch readers deeply as her journey to faith unfolds. Every effort is made to reach out to this strange, silent woman, but after living through her worst nightmare, she isn't soon ready to trust anyone with her secrets...not God, and definitely not the handsome soldier who tries to befriend her.

Booklist Review

With Secrets on the Wind, Whitson begins Pine Ridge Portraits, another of her romantic series set among the Lakota Sioux. Her arresting opening scenes bring to mind many a traditional western: two soldiers come upon a burned-out farmstead and discover a female lunatic locked in the cellar. After she tries to kill herself, they drag her back to Fort Robinson. She's nursed to health by a kind old woman and at last gives her name as Laina Gray. She has suffered a great deal and distrusts all men. She is also pregnant. Luckily, the soldier who rescued her, widower Nathan Boone, is a patient man. --John Mort Copyright 2003 Booklist
