Set on the Dakota frontier in 1867, Prairie Peace brings home to the reader the primitive conditions under which some settlers existed when young Cecile Palmer met and married the man of her dreams, Walt Williams. But, as often happens, her life is turned upside down when Walt disappears and winter is coming on. Rescue appears in the form of a Sioux brave named Lone Eagle who takes her with him to his tribe's winter home and she must learn new skills. While most of the tribe accept her presence among them, one woman proves a dangerous enemy. The author, Ginger Simpson, has done an excellent job on giving the reader a taste of the realities of the old west, but there are a few little notes of discordance that will jar the reader's concentration, such as a Sioux brave making coffee. I did overall find it an enjoyable read and the characters well drawn and the description of town, farm and tribal life both believable and interesting. Ms Simpson tells a good story that any romance reader will enjoy.
