T'on Ma - Magnolia Belle Western novel that addresses not only a forbidden romance, white woman and a native american male, but other pertinent issues of the time including slavery and women's rights or lack thereof. The checkered history of Texas during this turbulent time and the military's role out west as well as conditions are not sugar coated.I wished there was more of an exploration of the reality of the romance in context of joining the Kiowa tribe. I'd really like to see more romances that addressed native americans and not necessarily in the context of a biracial relationship. Overall, the story was entertaining and the plot moved well.
