by Susan Page Davis

Captive Trail

A girl has become a woman while in captivity. A stagecoach driver longs to take her to the home she barely remembers.
Taabe Waipu flees her Comanche village. Somewhere in southern Texas her real family lives in the white world. For years she’s struggled to keep the memories from fading. She stole the horse she is riding from a dowry left outside her family’s teepee. After an accident, she is left on foot, injured and exhausted. She staggers onto a road near Fort Chadbourne and collapses.
On one of the first mail runs through Texas, Butterfield Overland Mail Company driver Ned Bright carries two Ursuline nuns returning to their mission station. They come across Taabe, who is nearly dead from exposure and dehydration, and take her to the mission.
With some detective work, Ned discovers Taabe Waipu’s identity. He plans to reunite her with her white family, but the Comanche have other ideas. Taabe and Ned learn the true meaning of healing and restoration amid seemingly hopeless situations.
