|| "Synopsis:A mother's determination, a stranger's help, a child's fate Scott Renald is an Indian agent searching for white captives. Laura Little is a former captive seeking her Comanche-born son. They meet unexpectedly on the high plains. Touched by her story, Renald leads Laura's search for her son while hostile tribesmen pursue them. Word of their predicament reaches Fort Sill, and agents are dispatched to grab her and recall him. Meanwhile, the army prepares for war with the Comanche. Circumstances propel all into a bloody conflict of competing loyalties and surprising discoveries against the scorched backdrop of the Staked Plain. When does a captive stop being a captive? Is rescue and return at some point a crueler form of abduction? Comanche Captive depicts what happens after the taken has been found--in Laura's case, forced separation from her child, unwanted psychiatric care, and finally the deadly consequences of her quest for her lost son. An adventure novel of depth and contemporary resonance, equal parts poignant drama and playful homage, Comanche Captive offers a cast of vivid characters faced with the challenges of a divided and yet increasingly blended world"-- Provided by publisher.
