Faythe Emily Wentworth was taught by her father how to fight, and never shies from a conflict, no matter the odds. In her small settlement town, she must always be on guard. She is especially wary of one of the Downing brothers who taunts her, longing to take her, threatening to do so by force…
Faythe’s little sister Chloe is different. She is sweet-tempered, always seeing the good in others, and never suspecting ill intent.

About the Author
James T. Hogg is the pseudonym of one of the most prominent New York City real estate attorneys. As a real-life attorney he has published two non-fiction books about real estate and business, one of which was a Wall Street Journal best seller.
Girl With a Knife is his first novel, based on a story he told many times to his now-grown children. His goal was to create a story that the reader simply cannot put down, even when it is midnight and the reader needs to sleep.
In this novel, Hogg has created a world where girls and women of all cultures are equal or superior to the male characters around them, an epic tale that will appeal to women and men of all ages.
My thoughts: this is an interesting and intense story of injustice and struggle, set when the United States was still young and expanding. Moving back and forth between two narratives – the assault on Chloe and that of a young Native American woman.
Chloe is violently attacked by the sons of a prominent family in their small town, a family that will do anything to stay in power. Her sister Faythe will do anything to right this terrible wrong.
Nununyi is a young Native woman, injured in a fight with white men. Rescued by one of these men, who wants a different life, he nurses her back to health and they become a couple. She is drawn to her tribe and her childhood sweetheart, who thinks she’s dead.
Both women will have to overcome the prejudices and ignorance of the age, having to be tougher than many of the men around them. As the first part of this story ends, Faythe’s father is accused of a crime, and it will be up to her to help him.
