Toni Rodden is amazed at her escape from her life of prostitution and vows sheíll never return to that lifestyle again. After months on the wagon train, sheís managed to find a surrogate family with Fannie Caldwell, and she can finally taste freedom.

Sam Two-Feathers has fallen in love with Toni despite the wagon master Blake Tannerís objections, and tries to keep her safe. But when Indians decide they want Toni and she refuses to obey basic safety instructions, he isnít sure sheíll stay around. However, Sam decides to trust God to keep Toni safe.

Will Sam gather the courage to declare his love? And will Toni be able to move past her history to a bright future?

Distant Heart is another winner by award winning author Tracey Bateman. Toni was my favorite character in the first book in this series Defiant Heart and I was so happy to see that she had her own story. I couldnít wait until this book came out. Sam is a true sweatheart and won my love in the first book too.

Distant Heart didnít disappoint me. I enjoyed every minute of this book. At the end is an excerpt from the third book in the series Dangerous Heart. Donít miss Distant Heart. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book.
