Book Review: A Love Forbidden


They're from two different worlds.  Can love cross the divide?

Moved by a compassionate heart and the desire for adventure, twenty-year-old Shiloh Wainwright impulsively accepts a teaching position at the White River Indian Agency in northwestern Colorado.  Eager to use her skills to help improve the lives of Ute Indian children, she looks forward to a fulfilling, independent life on the Colorado frontier.

But her new job isn't what she imagined it would be, and Shiloh soon finds herself caught in the cross fire between the Utes, their unyielding Indian agent, and a demanding US government.  Her unexpected encounter with a half-Ute childhood friend, Jesse Black water, only complicates matters as they battle their growing feelings for each other amidst spiraling tensions that threaten to explode into a catastrophic uprising.

Set amongst the wilds of the Colorado Rockies in 1879, this tale from bestselling and award-winning author Kathleen Morgan explores the transformational power of forgiveness, compassion, and God's healing love with artistry and authenticity.

I read the first book in the Heart of the Rockies series, and this book did not disappoint me!  This book will bring to life the struggles of the Indians, the battles between them and the whites and those stuck somewhere in the middle, feeling as though they don't belong on either side-the half-breeds.

Shiloh is a girl with a great love for God and a big heart, and Kathleen Morgan does a great job of developing the story line, as well as the characters and bringing history alive while adding a dose of romance!
