She will learn the language. She will follow the rules. She will do anything she needs to get her son back... But will it be enough?

My review

Wolfkeeper's Woman takes you to an entirely different era. A time period that I m not that familiar with but as I read the words from the page, I could see the images as if I were watching a movie. I felt emotionally involved from the beginning. This unimaginable tale seemed s true to life that I hurt for the main character Cassie all the way through. She was a woman who always had to learn to make the best of every situation. She just had to make do with what she was given.
This story moved me and disturbed me, at the same time. Still, I had to read on. I needed to know what would become of this innocent lost woman ho had nowhere to turn for help or comfort.
Wolfkeeper's Woman kept my interest all the way through.

"The knife blade in his right hand seemed to glow as the sunlight danced reflectively off it. Ever so slowly, he advanced toward her. He tried to maneuver her into the corner near the foot of the bed. Knowing if she allowed him to succeed in cornering her there she would be trapped and t his mercy. She responded by swiftly running to the far side of the small table, which formed a barrier between the two of them, but only for a moment."

The two women were pleased. All that was left was a few bags and containers, mostly Wolf keeper’s personal belongings. Cassie was hesitated to go through them. Grandmother insisted saying, ‘he said everything was to be sorted through,’ that included these remaining things of his. She left Cassie to do this chore alone.

Sitting there with his special personal items around her, Cassie realized she didn’t know the significance of anything to be able chose what to discard or keep.

Why that low down dog, she thought. Now she knew why he had her rummage through his belongs. No secrets, he said, there were to be no secrets between them. She could wring his neck. That son of a badger.

Cassie eyes closed and her head shook in disbelief. She remembered if she did wring his neck, she had better do it inside if she did not want see the whipping post. Inside would be just fine, she thought. Then she softly laughed, inside would be just fine. He should be called Cunning Fox not Wolfkeeper.

Suddenly, she stopped laughing. She felt like she’d been sucker punched in the gut. The truth of the man who called her Ghostwoman dawned on her. A fearless warrior on the outside, Wolfkeeper was a man of honor who cared deeply and wholeheartedly about the people he loved.

He respected honesty. Cassie remembered when she did not try to hide the events with the trader. He had told her many times not to lie. He demanded truth whether he liked what it exposed or not. He trusted her. Even when he was not watching over her, like now. That was what this was about. He wanted her to be honest, truthful, and trustworthy towards him.

She could be honest and truthful, but trusting she did not know. How do you trust someone who took what he had taken from her?
