The Vine: February 8, 2013
There's a historical romance I'm looking for. I can only remember some parts of it. I read it in the early '90s.
It starts out where this girl is with her father in this field (United States circa 1800s, early 1900s). Her father is some sort of researcher or scientist. They're attacked by American Indians. The dad dies, the girl gets stabbed with a spear (but not before she does some damage to some guys with a machete).
She is taken to a ranch of some sort with cowboys and they take care of her — she learns to ride very well — they think she's a boy for a good long while.
Later on, she winds up on a reservation and is a wife to the chief…there's a time where she meets the Indian she cut with the machete and she shows him her scar..
Then she's rescued by those ranchers that had her when she was younger…(I think it was those guys). Later on, she winds up in a large house as the wife of a lord (or something like that) and she has twins and she doesn't know if they're the Indian chief's kids or her husband (the men do have similar features).
This is one of those thick books with small print and a girl with a ripped gown and a sexy, swarthy guy on the cover…
Thanks so much for your help.
Hello, Sars and lovely Vine readers.
I have earphone woe. Earbuds slip right out of my (normal-looking but clearly not-earbud-shaped) ears. I don't even have to be walking – just sitting on the train is enough to have them fall out.
I am thinking of taking up running and definitely need earphones to listen to music/podcasts/my Couch-to-5K app while running, so would love some suggestions!
I can't (and don't want to) pay super-huge noise-cancelling-DJ-headphone prices, and since I'll be running in them, something light is preferred.
One other thing: I wear glasses (even while running) and so I can't wear anything that will interfere with or press too hard on the arms of the glasses.
