Raven’s Passion is a wonderful young adult book written by Mary Adair. Raven is raised by his adoptive parents. He is a confused, temperamental young man who does not know who his white biological father is, and feels like a misfit with the Cherokees. He does his best to adjust, but the taunts of some Indians always remind him that he is a half breed. Raven’s adoptive father, Red Panther, is a good role model, but Raven yearns to know his father. 

When Indians are abducted by ruthless men, Raven and a war party search for them, encountering challenges along the way. Raven faces these battles with courage while fighting his own personal battle. 

Although Raven’s Passion has a setting in the untamed western frontier, the story is one that many young adults will find interesting. It deals with issues that today’s younger generation often faces. One of these is the burning desire to know the biological parent who has been absent from their lives from birth. 

I thought author Mary Adair did well, creating characters who were so realistic with their problems. She skillfully displayed how people lived in the past, while making the different personalities and feelings of the characters connect with the
reader. I am impressed with the quality writing I have seen, as well her expertise on Indian history. This is the first book I have read from Mary Adair, but do intend to read more from this author.

Raven's Passion is now available at CreateSpace and will be available in three days at Amazon.
