Author: Renae Brumbaugh Green

Genre: Historical Romance

Release date: June 14, 2022

She’s struggled her entire life to overcome her parentage.

Skye Stratton is nearly perfect. Or at least, she tries to be. She carries the Stratton name, but everyone knows her true half-breed heritage. When she completes her education and is hired as a teacher at the local school, she hopes to finally find acceptance in the town. But when most of her class elects to stay home rather than be taught by an Indian, she knows things will never change.

Alan McNaughten went to Washington, D.C. to make a difference. Instead, he finds himself entrenched in political lies, manipulation, and deceit. When he finds a way to return home to Texas as an Indian Agent, he leaps at the chance. Even if he must hurt an innocent woman to secure his position.

But when the lovely Miss Stratton agrees to teach for the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation, Alan knows he’s gone too far. He’ll do anything to protect her from further heartache and harm. But what will happen when she learns the truth about her position…and the truth about him?

Historical Fiction is one of my favorite Genres. I was really intrigued by the synopsis of this book and had the honor of reading it. Legacy of Love by Renae Brumbaugh Green is Book 2 in The Stratton Legacy Series. I have not read Book 1 yet, but I had no trouble following along in this book. 

Skye Stratton has just finished her Education and is hired to Teach at the Local School. Skye strives for perfection in all she does but has struggled for years to be accepted. The townspeople know of her Indian Heritage and have not been too kind to her. She is really disappointed when the students stay home from school rather than allow her to be their teacher due to her Indian Heritage. Alan McNaughten has just returned home to Texas, leaving Washington D.C. behind. He was tired of the Lies and Deceit in Washington D.C. He comes home and is vying for a job as an Indian Agent. He convinces Skye to teach at Alabama-Coushatta Reservation. Alan and Skye are falling for one another as Alan feels the need to protect Skye. He is hiding a secret and worries about how that would affect the future relationship between them. Will Skye ever be able to be accepted and find her place where she belongs? Will there be a relationship between Alan and Skye? 

A WONDERFUL storyline and book! I was captivated by the book as soon as I started reading. Skye knows what she enjoys in life and is just striving to be accepted by others. The community she lives in is predominantly White and she is half Indian Heritage. It broke my heart to see her being rejected as the Teacher for the Local School. Alan is a great character in the book also. He really wants to be moral in his job and leaves Washington D.C to come home. He realizes he doesn't want to truly hurt Skye, yet is not ready to tell Skye the truth about who he is until he has his job secured. The Song "Place in this World" by Michael W. Smith kept coming to mind as I was reading this book. I HIGHLY Recommend this book to anyone who loves Historical Fiction Romance. GREAT BOOK!

More from Renae


All my life, since I can remember, I’ve been told I’m part Native American. My great-great grandmother on my mother’s side, they said, was full-blooded Comanche. So even though I am blonde and fair (I have glow-in-the-dark skin) I believed them. I told people, and laughed at their sideways looks. I was proud of my heritage.

Then I took one of those Ancestry DNA tests. Nope. Not one drop of Native American in me. According to the test, I’m English, Scottish, Irish, and Swedish. And yes, I am the biological child of my father (very blonde and fair) and my mother (brunette, with high cheekbones). So I guess it’s just the way the genetic dominoes fell. When I got my mom’s half, I apparently didn’t get the Native American part.

I’m not sure how the science of DNA works, but I will tell you I feel extremely connected to Skye, the heroine of Legacy of Love. She’s a perfectionist. I’m a perfectionist. She thinks she has to perform to be accepted. I do, too. Though she’s always been loved, she struggles to fit in, to feel like she’s really a part of things. Ditto.

Skye’s journey is both difficult and beautiful. It helps that there’s a dreamy beaux (or three!) along the way. But in all the hardship and heartache, she finds herself. And she finds that she’s enough, exactly as she is. Most importantly, she finds a relationship with the One who created her and loved her before time began.

I hope you enjoy Skye’s journey in book two of The Stratton Legacy series. If you haven’t read book one, I encourage you to do so—you’ll meet Skye as a child. More than anything, I hope you’ll glean some beautiful truths along the way.

You are precious.

You are loved.

You are enough.
