I was given this book in turn for an honest review.
With overheard conversations, and the jumping to conclusions, Chief doesn’t hold back his feelings for the work that Sophie does. Willing to prove her work is for the greater good, Sophie challenges Chief, and much to his surprise he discovers much more than he bargained for.
Shelter for Sophie was the perfect holiday read for me. I was enthralled and captivated by Sophie and Chief’s story from the first chapter. Susan Stoker brought these two alive for me with the wonderful captivation of her words, and her great eye for detail, and back story. The detail to which she went to for Chief’s history had me searching the internet to discover more about Native American Indians, and their customs.
I really liked Sophie, she was passionate, strong, determined, brave, and knew how to hold her own when it came to fighting for what she believed in, and for justice. Everyone to her was a friend; she didn’t care where they lived or how they looked. She believed in a better life for everyone.
Chief was an interesting and complex character. He was a wonderful person to learn more about. His beliefs were strong and yet he didn’t push them on to others. He was respectful of everyone, and went to great lengths to help his friends, and their families. He intrigued me from the very beginning, and I think I could have read more about him telling Sophie, about his ancestor’s history for days on end. I almost felt like I could hear his masculine, yet soothing voice as I read.
I was sad when this story ended, I could read more about Chief and Sophie, all day long. This is definitely, the type of book you can read time and time again.
Although Shelter for Sophie is part of a series you can read this book as a standalone. Personally, to get the full potential of this story, and the series, I recommend reading them in order.
