Seven years after Della was rescued from Cheyenne Dog Soldier Wild Wind's village, Wild Wind goes to his half-brother Shane's ranch to find work. Wild Wind detested life on the reservation because they tried to take his horse and rifle away from him. When he arrives, he discovers that Shane had died during a blizzard, and his feelings for Della had not changed over the years. He is still in love with her and wants to marry her. His Cheyenne wife, Little Fawn, and their baby had also died. Della is still grieving the deaths of her husband and their two-year-old daughter, Fanny, who died from the croup. Wild Wind and Shane had the same mother, but different fathers after Cheyenne Chief Yellow Wolf married their mother after capturing her and Shane. Can the ranch hands forget the number of white people Chieftain Wild Wind has killed? Can Wild Wind live the life of a white man? Why would he leave his people on the reservation? Can Della love a man who does not believe in God?

Warrior's Heart by Colleen Hall has many positive aspects. Although it is Book 3 of The Frontier Hearts Saga, I did not feel I was missing anything from the previous books. The character development is fantastic, and I came to know each character personally, where I sensed their emotions of love and grief. I could understand Della's hesitation in giving Shane's clothes and other belongings to Wild Wind and her feeling that she was closing the door on her dead husband. I enjoyed reading and learning about the different customs of the Cheyenne Indians and the residents of 1876 Colorado and Boston. I liked how the characters always treated children as equals. I feel that it is important for children to be treated this way. The plot flowed smoothly, although there was very little suspense in the book, and I knew the ending from the beginning of the book. There was just enough suspense and mystery as to what would happen next to keep me turning the pages and enjoying the book.

There was nothing I disliked about this book. The book is well written and has only a few minor errors that did not affect my reading enjoyment.

This professionally edited book deserves nothing less than 4 out of 4 stars. I can think of no reason to give this enjoyable book fewer stars because I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

There's nothing better than a book with a great plot and proper depiction of characters. This is what makes a book intriguing and from the review, I got a glimpse of what the book is like. Great work.

Quite a bunch of challenges faced by the characters. I hope they end up happily ever after.
